BALTIMORE (AP) - Justify has finished first at the Preakness, galloping to victory in a thick fog and on a sloppy track at Pimlico to keep alive his bid to capture the Triple Crown. With jockey Mike Smith in the saddle, Justify held off seven challengers to remain unbeaten and apparently giving trainer Bob Baffert his record-tying seventh Preakness victory. Bravazo finished second and Tenfold took third in the 1 3/16-mile race.
BALTIMORE (AP) - Dueling in the fog in front of 134,487 fans straining to see the action, Good Magic gamely jumped to the lead in the Preakness and held the rail. Every time Kentucky Derby winner Justify got close, Good Magic withstood the challenge. Good Magic faded to fourth, however, and afterward his trainer lamented the colt's quick start.
