A Texas girl won £1.2 million on a £ 18 "Select 5" stake that comprised Kentucky Derby winnner Justify.
Smith's silks were almost spotless after he kept 5-2 favorite Justify near the lead throughout the race. "If you have LeBron on your team you better win a championship with him".
"For a horse to do what he has done he has to be really great", Baffert said.
"I was just in awe of the performance", Baffert said. He looks good, but I just have to observe him. Justify entered the Derby as the favorite with 3-1 odds, although that came two races after the bettor won a massive long shot in Funny Duck. "He has got the mind for it".
The victory was worth $1,432,000 to owners WinStar Farm, China Horse Club, Starlight Racing and Head of Plains Partners. Still, he said, he fretted most of Saturday because of the bad weather. 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. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him.

Promises Fulfilled fell back and Justify was able to hold off Good Magic, who came second, and Bolt d'Oro, who finished in third, for the big victory.
"I didn't tell them I'd think about it", he said.
Baffert said the three-year-old colt had abundant energy the morning after defeating Good Magic by 2 1/2 lengths to conquer a 20-horse field over 1 1/4 miles on a muddy Churchill Downs track.
The Kentucky Derby is one of the most historic moments in sports.
Her hot streak started with the eighth race on Saturday at Churchill Downs when 6-year-old gelding Limousine Liberal won the Churchill Downs Stakes. Why settle for one Triple Crown when perhaps Justify can bring you another? "Mike took his time - we knew it was going to be a hot pace".
