In another impressive performance, Justify (2-5) captured the second leg of the Triple Crown in muddy conditions at Pimlico Race Course. Rounding out the top three finishers were Bravazo (15-1) and Tenfold (25-1).
It was a tight race, but the undefeated colt and overwhelming favorite beat out Bravazo by a half-length in an exciting finish. Good Magic had the second-best odds to win and was a trendy pick to upset Justify, but the thoroughbred failed to crack the top three and finished in fourth place. It’s also notable that Quip (12-1) finished in last.
