Jus­tiFy gEt­ting a FEEl For Pim­lico track

Montreal Gazette - - SPORTS -

Ken­tucky Derby win­ner Jus­tify has be­come ac­quainted with the track at Pim­lico Race Course, where he will at­tempt to keep his Triple Crown hopes alive Satur­day in the Preak­ness. Be­cause the track was soaked from a heavy shower, trainer Bob Baf­fert made it easy for his un­de­feated ch­est­nut colt dur­ing the Thurs­day work­out. “He was just get­ting warmed up. He’s ready to do a lot more, but we just don’t want him to do too much,” Baf­fert said. Jus­tify won in the slop at Churchill Downs, so the prediction of rain on Satur­day didn’t seem to bother Baf­fert, who said, “This track can prob­a­bly take more wa­ter than any track I’ve ever seen.”
