Justify is justifiably getting a lot of credit for his big win at the 144th Kentucky Derby this weekend.
So, when we saw the silver-haired horse god at LAX, we had to ask about his new superstar.
"I don't think Pharoah really ran his best race (in the Kentucky Derby)", Baffert said.
That was down from last year's 10.5 percent and a result, in part, of the Derby going head-to-head with an National Basketball Association playoff game between the Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics.
Kilauea volcano: Lava destroys 26 homes, more than 1700 people evacuated
The collapse caused magma to push more than 10 miles (16km ) downslope towards the populated south-east coastline of the island. I have also activated the Hawai'i National Guard to support county emergency response teams with evacuations and security.
"(Jockey) Mike (Smith) was telling me he had trouble pulling him up", Baffert said.
Television ratings for the Kentucky Derby, telecast by NBC Sports, dropped to their lowest level in six years. Trainer Todd Pletcher doesn't like running a horse after just a two-week break, so his four Derby entries - third-place Audible, Magnum Moon, Vino Rosso and Noble Indy - probably will not be shipped to Baltimore for the Preakness, which is capped at 14 horses. The Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York, is June 9 at Belmont Park.
The competition isn't exactly lining up to take on Kentucky Derby victor Justify in the Preakness.
A Texas woman made nearly as much money off the Kentucky Derby as the owners of the winning horse when her $18 bid snagged her a cool $1.2 million.
Tesla drops in premarket after Musk lets loose on call
Next, Musk was asked many questions by Galileo Russell, a 25-year-old retail investor, and owner of a YouTube Channel. Tesla shares are up 1.1% in Friday trading but off 3.3% over the past 12 months, while the S&P 500 has gained 10%.
Smith, who won the Derby on Giacomo in 2005, said the victory was due to the horse. "I just basically stayed out the way". "It was just an awesome performance".
"I want him back in NY and that gives me time to decide what's next", trainer Chad Brown said. Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet.
"We certainly feel like he's got a chance to go off in two weeks", owner Elliott Walden said.
Among the fresh horses under consideration are Tampa Bay Derby victor Quip and Federico Tesio victor Diamond King. He'll run in the Preakness and after that, we'll see.
