The 2018 Preakness Stakes will take place Saturday at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore.
Justify’s feet were tender following the Kentucky Derby but the problem is behind him after quick treatment and he is on track for the Preakness, trainer Bob Baffert said. Justify ended the so-called “Curse of Apollo,” becoming the first horse since 1882 to win the Derby without racing as a 2-year-old. Now, with Justify showing Triple Crown-type ability, the focus becomes ending a much shorter drought for the sport.
The second of the Triple Crown’s three legs is scheduled for a 6:20 p.m. ET post time.
Kentucky Derby winner Justify is the favorite.
