Maraud won the American Turf Stakes in the ninth race, and Funny Duck took the Pat Day Mile race after facing 39-1 odds. The third race of the treble is June 9 at the Belmont Stakes in NY.

"Amazing horse", Smith said. "Right now I'm just thinking about keeping him healthy".

It was an emphatic statement coming from a trainer who, in 2015, won the first Triple Crown in 37 years with American Pharoah and who also presided over the world's richest racehorse, Arrogate.

But months before the race, one courageous bettor wagered $500 on Justify when he was still unraced, and it wasn't even a certainty that he would participate in the Derby. "Mike took his time - we knew it was going to be a hot pace".

Good Magic's sire, Curlin, won the Preakness in 2007 after finishing third at the Kentucky Derby. Justify's win was the safest, with a track record of 3-1. "I'm not thinking about that at all, not yet", he said.

He, however, reached another milestone when he completed the circumference of the planet in race kilometres. The 2017 race victor Dani Pedrosa had the second best time ahead of Johann Zarco and Jorge Lorenzo .

Frost Brown Todd-the largest law firm in Louisville, Kentucky-entertained clients during a week of Kentucky Derby events, while its chairman emeritus had an even bigger stake in the Run for the Roses.

Mendelssohn, trained by Ireland's Aidan O'Brien and hoping to become the first European-based horse to win the Derby, was last in the 20-horse field before 157,813 spectators.

Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who was riding his second Derby victor and his first since winning with Giacomo in 2005, said his mount has "unbelievable talent". Good Magic was sired by 2007 Preakness victor Curlin, but trainer Chad Brown won't commit to the Preakness just yet. Maybe they just wanted to have a good time.

"He got beat up out of the gate and proceeded to check on the first turn, and was never in a good place", jockey Ryan Moore said.
