In a dominating performance through the slop and the mud, Justify showed the world why he was the favorite coming into the 144th Kentucky Derby.
Bob Baffert notched yet another Derby winner and he is looking at Justify to try to duplicate what American Pharoah did and win that elusive Triple Crown.
I’m not sure if it can be done so soon after the last one, but that horse looked damn good going down the stretch.
As for the world of sports around the Kentucky Wildcats, there isn’t a lot going on so it’s going to be a short quickies on what looks to be a beautiful Sunday.
