Kentucky Derby Jockey Praises Jesus After Big Win with 'Justify'

Iris Goo Goo Dolls frontman John Rzeznik 52 also slid onto stage for the show

The woman is taking home around the same amount as Justify's team, who won $1.4 million, according to the Associated Press.

Justify beat everyone's ass at Churchill Downs this weekend - racking up another Derby victory for Baffert, who many consider the greatest racehorse trainer EVER! A lot of people including myself were very wary of him because he had only raced 3 times and never as a 2-year-old.

"He's got that "it" factor", Smith said.

"That last 100 yards, I was just in awe of that performance", Baffert said. "I didn't say anything". He owned a stake in Justify, the victor of the 144th running of the race, and third-place finisher Audible through a Kentucky racing syndicate called Starlight, the American Lawyer reported. "We've just got to go from there".

Baffert has been continually asked to compare Justify to American Pharoah, who won the Triple Crown three years ago.




Justify became only the second horse to win the Derby after not racing as a two-year-old, the other being Apollo in 1882.

"I don't know", said Brown, who won the Preakness previous year with new-shooter Cloud Computing. It started in 1997 with Silver Charm, followed by Real Quiet in 1998, War Emblem in 2002 and American Pharoah in 2015.

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. Why settle for one Triple Crown when perhaps Justify can bring you another?

The horse's large ownership group reflects the rise of partnerships across the industry, even among the sport's most powerful owners. He then had to take on a challenge by Bolt D'Oro.

Good Magic returned $9.20 and $6.60 in second place, while Audible was another head back in third and paid $5.80 to show.
