Favourite Justify draws 7 post for Preakness

horse racing justify preaknessBALTIMORE -- Having the Preakness favorite has never bothered Bob Baffert before, and it doesn't bother him with Justify.Coming off an impressive victory in the Kentucky Derby, Justify is the 1-2 morning-line favorite for Saturday's second race in a field of eight horses. Derby runner-up Good Magic is the second choice at 3-1, but Justify is the horse to beat, with a chance to give Baffert his seventh Preakness winner and a shot at a second Triple Crown in four years after American Pharoah accomplished the feat in 2015.
 
Baffert is 4-0 in the Preakness with the Derby winner and doesn't see any reason Justify doesn't have another big run in him.
 
"I like being the favorite," Baffert said Wednesday. "I don't want to be 50-1. I like knowing that I have a chance to win. When you come in, and you're like, 'Well, I don't know, we're going to need the Stanford marching band to interfere a little bit,' then you don't feel that well. I just feel that when you know that there's a chance you can pull this off, and when you can win on the big arena, that's what it's all about."
