"For a horse to do what he has done he has to be really great", Baffert said. Can Baffert's latest Derby victor take the Preakness?
A day after Justify raced to a 2½-length victory in the slop as the 5-2 favorite, trainer Bob Baffert and his star horse drew a horde of visitors to his barn at Churchill Downs.
He gunned Justify out of the No. 7 spot in the starting gate - something Baffert said had to happen - and the colt's early speed helped hook leader Promises Fulfilled from the start.

Mets GM: Decision to DFA Harvey was 'a long time coming'
Harvey returned in 2015 and went 13-8 with a 2.27 ERA as the Mets reached the World Series for the first time since 2000. He was nicknamed the Dark Knight of Gotham after Sports Illustrated called him that in a cover story in May 2013.
Justify's owners won 1.24 million. "Pharoah's race was sort of like (Justify's) Santa Anita Derby". And when Justify crossed the finish line first in the Kentucky Derby, the 12th race on the card, the woman was $1.2 million richer. I don't know if he's so strong or Mike (age 52) is just too old to pull him up. He looks good, but I just have to observe him.
It's already been declared that most of the better horses are skipping the last two legs of the Triple Crown or are holding off until the Belmont Stakes. Good Magic was second while Audible was another head back in third.
"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said.
"I don't know", said Brown, who won the Preakness previous year with new-shooter Cloud Computing. Diamond King, who won the Federico Tesio Stakes at Laurel, is also possible for the race. He'll run in the Preakness and after that, we'll see. He then had to take on a challenge by Bolt D'Oro.
