Every year at the Preakness, all eyes are on the Kentucky Derby winner, with the hope and expectation that the champion of three weeks ago can win at Pimlico to take the necessary second step toward winning the Triple Crown. Three weeks ago, Justify romped to a decisive victory in Kentucky. Would it happen again in muddy, foggy Maryland?
The answer: absolutely. Justify won in 1:55.93, and now heads to the Belmont Stakes with a chance to win the Triple Crown.
