The morning line odds had Justify as the chalk at 1-2, and that number made Baffert wince a little. At 9 and a half furlongs, Preakness is the shortest of the Triple Crown events, and is held at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. Prior to the Kentucky Derby, he won the Santa Anita Derby. But even if public support somewhat juices his odds, Justify still might be the smartest bet in the field this Saturday.

Justify did have a hoof issue coming out of the Kentucky Derby, and a specialist flew in from Florida to re-shoe the horse's foot, writes Fran Jurga for HoofBlog.com. As soon as Bob Baffert unloaded Justify from the van, the chestnut colt led the Hall of Fame trainer on several laps around the stakes barn.

Diamond King is one of the best long shots in the Preakness this year. And the forecast for wet weather and a sloppy track Saturday does not figure to be an adverse factor for Justify. As a 3-year-old, he won the Blue Grass Stakes before finishing second in the Derby. Several of these races no longer exist. Ownder D. Wayne Lucas is running two horses at Preakness, Sporting Chance being his other entry.

If you needed something more to convince you about Justify's chances in the Preakness Stakes, all four of Baffert's previous Kentucky Derby winners went on to win two weeks later at Pimlico.
