Justify Draws 7th Position For Preakness

Justify became this year's candidate to become thoroughbred racing's 13 Triple Crown victor by capturing the Kentucky Derby by 2.5 lengths over Good Magic on May 5.

A almost 136-year-old streak of odd luck, set on May 16, 1882, was broken May 5 of this year, with the victory of 3-year-old Justify in the Kentucky Derby.

BALTIMORE (AP) - Kentucky Derby victor Justify has arrived at Pimlico Race Course, full of energy in advance of Saturday's Preakness.

Trainer Bob Baffert said he's wanted to let Justify develop at his own pace.

It's a little harder to pinpoint "bad" positions when there's only eight horses running as opposed to 20, but Quip, on the outside at Post 1, isn't necessarily in a good position unless his team thinks he can run full bore from the get-go and overpower Justify down the stretch.

Then Justify came along, and beat the closest contender, Good Magic, by 2 1/2 lengths. He'll be joined by fellow Derby horses such as Good Magic and Lone Sailor, but will also be facing off against a few fresh horses that chose to skip the Derby in favor of preparing for the Preakness Stakes, including Diamond King and Quip.

Unlike Justify, Good Magic and two other Kentucky Derby horses in the Preakness field, Quip was held for the Preakness.

The most recent horse to start from Post 7 and win the Preakness was Lookin at Lucky in 2010.

Before his Kentucky Derby victory, Justify looked dominant in three races, including the Santa Anita Derby.
