"The horse is sound".

In a pick five, a person must choose the winning horses for five races in a row.

Baffert was foreshadowing just what an upside awaits Justify.

"That's when we knew how special he was", Baffert said. "He's full of himself". Today he's been a handful. He's so lovely. He's got the body. "Usually they're a little bit exhausted, but he was good".

The next race in the Triple Crown series is May 19 - the Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Although in this case, it started in earnest moments after the race Saturday. Horses are pictured running the race at Churchill Downs on May 6, 2017 in Louisville, Kentucky.

There's a historical reason to back that theory. Can Baffert's latest Derby victor take the Preakness?

"It would take a horse like him to break that curse".

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

Television ratings for the Kentucky Derby, telecast by NBC Sports, dropped to their lowest level in six years.

"I thought he was special, and then after his maiden win I thought, 'Man he is really, really special, '" Baffert said.

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

Justify began racing in February and won his first race, at Santa Anita, by 9 1/2 lengths. It was just OK. The Preakness, as always, will be run on the third Saturday of May. "That was probably his best race".

"(Jockey) Mike (Smith) was telling me he had trouble pulling him up", Baffert said. "Right now I'm just thinking about keeping him healthy. It was a pretty awesome performance".
