Undefeated Kentucky Derby victor Justify will race in the second leg of United States flat racing's Triple Crown at the Preakness in two weeks, trainer Bob Baffert said Sunday.

The Kentucky Derby says Justify earned $1,432,000 for the victory.

The woman, who hails from Austin, Texas, correctly picked the favorite Justify to win the big race.

Now, Baffert is in position to make another run at the Triple Crown.

Records and streaks are made to be a broken and Baffert is certainly on a tear. "If you have LeBron on your team you better win a championship with him". With his fifth victory, the 65-year-old snapped a tie for second and trails only Ben Jones with six.

Baffert was foreshadowing just what an upside awaits Justify. The imposing chestnut colt with the blaze running from his eyes to the tip of his nose improved to 4-0 - winning his races by a combined 21½ lengths.

A woman has won millions thanks to the Kentucky Derby.

Baffert guided his fifth Derby victor out of the barn and walked him in a tight circle for fans who eagerly snapped photos on their phones. Bill Shoemaker was 54 when he won with Ferdinand in 1986.

The Pimlico track is shorter than Churchill Downs, at 9.5 furlongs, down from the 10-furlong track at the Derby.

The race was the wettest in the event's history, as more than 3 inches of rain fell Saturday. Jockey Mike Smith, 52, is also being praised for the successful Derby run, but Smith is directing those praises upward.

When asked about the race right after his big win, the first thing Smith does is thank Jesus, telling reporters, "I just want to thank my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for blessing us on this afternoon, and blessing us with this fantastic horse".

Early on the pace was frantic as they went 1/4 mile in 22.24 and a half in 45.77 seconds.

The competition isn't exactly lining up to take on Kentucky Derby victor Justify in the Preakness.

Instilled Regard was fourth, followed by My Boy Jack, Bravazo and Hofburg.
