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

"He knows he's a stud", Baffert said. "He's full of himself". He came back and he really wasn't that exhausted. Today he's been a handful.

"My job was just to get him out of there", he said. "Usually they are a little bit exhausted". She also correctly picked a 40-1 underdog (Funny Duck) in a different race. The Belmont Stakes in Elmont, New York, is June 9 at Belmont Park.

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

Justify was the first colt who didn't race as a 2-year-old to win the Derby since 1882, in what was known as the "Curse of Apollo".

Justify, the 5-2 favorite, became the first Derby victor in 136 years that did not race as a 2-year-old.

Air France under threat amid strikes: Economy minister
The French Minister of Economy and Finance, Bruno Le Mairie, appealed "to reason" to striking Air France workers. The offer was open until 4 May, but did not receive the number of signatures required for it to be implemented.

Warriors star Curry to start Game 3 against Pelicans
The guard averaged 27.8 points per game in the first round, but he combined to score just 35 points on 38 shots in Games 1 and 2. After scoring 28 points in 27 minutes off the bench on Tuesday night, he appears healthy and ready for an expanded role.

Toure to leave Manchester City at end of season
Toure hasn't played much of a role this season, though that shouldn't understate his contributions since joining Manchester City in 2010.

Entering the final turn, Justify took the lead and kept on going to the finish under Smith's left-handed whip. It started in 1997 with Silver Charm, followed by Real Quiet in 1998, War Emblem in 2002 and American Pharoah in 2015. We were hoping he had that in him. "That's the best Kentucky Derby-winning performance that I brought up here". That's where the greatness comes in.

He continued, "He's got that "it" factor, he's just so above average with unbelievable talent and he's got the mind to go with it". "He does it so easily".

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 wonderful horse". I keep using the term 'above average, ' because he has a mind to him as well. We still have another one in a couple of weeks if all's well. He'll run in the Preakness and after that, we'll see.

What sort of rivals will show up in Baltimore is anyone's guess.

Good Magic, who ran a good but futile second, is on the fence for the Preakness.

"I want to give myself a little room to really observe the horse", Brown said. Lukas has won the Preakness six times. Can Baffert's latest Derby victor take the Preakness?
