Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet.

The sound of at least 30 cameras buzzing and clicking broke the silence of the backstretch as Baffert tried to steady his horse.

"I'm not thinking about that at all, not yet", he said.

By winning the Kentucky Derby he became the first horse in 136 years to win the Kentucky Derby without ever racing as a 2-year-old.

His four other Derby winners - Silver Charm, Real Quiet, War Emblem and American Pharoah - all won the 1 3/16-mile race. "If you have LeBron on your team you better win a championship with him".

The Times cites McCain's "rocky relationship" with the president as the reason Trump is reportedly not invited. Joe Lieberman of CT , have been visiting McCain at his Arizona ranch and a nearby hospital in recent weeks.

"He's a superior horse", said Baffert, who captured his fifth Derby.

"You better get used to this", the five-time Derby victor said to his colt.

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. Baffert is four for four in winning the Preakness after winning the Derby.

Justify began racing in February and won his first race, at Santa Anita, by 9 1/2 lengths. I don't know if he's so strong or Mike (age 52) is just too old to pull him up. It was a sigh of relief when I got him out of the gate and I just stayed out of his way. But he said: "I've never been on a 3-year-old like this". Lukas has won the Preakness six times. "If I like the way he comes out of that, then we'll take a shot at the Belmont".

Among the fresh horses under consideration are Tampa Bay Derby victor Quip and Federico Tesio victor Diamond King.
