Justify Wins the 144th Kentucky Derby

The Kentucky Derby is ran annually on the first Saturday of May. Known as the “Greatest Two Minutes in Sports”, for the approximate time it takes a thoroughbred to run the historic Churchill Downs track.

Justify won the 144th running of the Kentucky Derby, leading the pack through the muddy track. The 3 year old colt was the favorite going into the race. The favorite has won six years in a row now. Justify’s win won Bob Baffert his fifth Kentucky Derby Trophy.

Justify became the first horse since 1882 to win the Kentucky Derby without racing as a two year old. Justify attracted attention after an impressive win in February that also lead him to win the Grade I Santa Anita Derby. The Kentucky Derby win has made him also a Preakness favorite.

With over 150,000 people attending the wettest Kentucky Derby in history, it shows that nothing dampens the Derby fun. Come join us for the 2019 Kentucky Derby.
