Justify will compete for horse racing’s triple crown at the Belmont Stakes in two weeks after winning Saturday’s Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
Justify was the favorite coming into the Preakness after a dominant victory at the Kentucky Derby two weeks ago.
Good Magic kept up with Justify for nearly the entire race at Pimlico before Justify pulled away at the end, although you could barely tell due to the foggy/rainy conditions at the track.
The last triple crown winner was American Pharoah in 2014. That horse was trained by legendary trainer Bob Baffert, who’s also working with Justify.
The running of the Belmont Stakes will take place June 9 in Elmont, N.Y.
