Todd Pletcher, who dislikes running his horses again in two weeks, said Audible (third in the Derby), Magnum Moon, Vino Rosso and Noble Indy would return to his NY base.

The sound of at least 30 cameras buzzing and clicking broke the silence of the backstretch as Baffert tried to steady his horse.

"I was just in awe of the performance", he said.

The white-haired trainer smashed a jinx that stood for 136 years when Justify splashed through the slop to win the Kentucky Derby by 2½ lengths on Saturday.

A Texas woman walked away with more than $1 million after placing less than a $20 bet on a Kentucky Derby race.

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

Smith, who won the Derby on Giacomo in 2005, said the victory was due to the horse.

In a pick five, a person must choose the winning horses for five races in a row. This horse is the real deal and now has the eyes of America on him.

The 3-year-old colt arrived at Churchill Downs being compared by some to 2015 Triple Crown victor American Pharoah. "Pharoah's race was sort of like (Justify's) Santa Anita Derby".

"My job was just to get him out of there", he said. "Right now I'm just thinking about keeping him healthy".

"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said. He'll run in the Preakness and after that, we'll see.

We'll find out in less than two weeks when the starting gates open at The Run for the Black-Eyed Susans at Pimlico. "If I like the way he comes out of that, then we'll take a shot at the Belmont".
