Elliott Walden wants to go from spoiler to Triple Crown champion

Justify wins the Preakness Stakes

For the Preakness, Justify drew the number seven spot out of eight total.

"But right now I say why not?"

For those without cable, free trials of Hulu Live or YouTube TV offer access to the race for the day.

Justify displayed none of the foot discomfort that spurred widespread concern the morning after the Kentucky Derby. If he wins at Pimlico, he'll go to Belmont Park in three weeks to try to complete the Triple Crown. And, as always, the Preakness attracted some Triple Crown newcomers like Quip and Tenfold to see how they stacked up against a Derby victor.

"Nobody's gonna ever touch that". If the horse wins there, it would be trainer Bob Baffert's second Triple Crown victory in four years. His story lacks the pent-up energy that had built for nearly four decades as fans awaited a successor to Affirmed in the Triple Crown firmament.

"We've got leaks everywhere, people sitting at tables and tiles falling out", said Tim Ritvo, chief operating officer for the Stronach Group, which owns the track.

"I think we'd have a smaller attendance". Something always goes wrong.

We can tell you he's loving Quip, who's going off at 9-1 Preakness odds.

Red's Hype-Filled Holographic Phone Is Coming to AT&T and Verizon
The biggest takeaway from Brownlee's video of the Hydrogen One prototype, though, may be how big the phone is. Verizon has just announced it will carry the RED Hydrogen One , world's first holographic smartphone.

The track was so wet, Pimlico was forced to move five of the six scheduled grass races Saturday to dirt and worked around-the-clock in the days leading up to the Preakness to drain water off the course so that it wouldn't pool along the rail.

The three-year-old fought off a lengthy challenge from Kentucky Derby runner-up Good Magic, then withstood hard-charging Bravazo for a half-length victory. It's a testament to his talent that he won anyway. "You can't just bring it all the time". However, when horses duel it can be more tiring than if one sets hot splits by itself.

Looking ahead to Belmont, jockey Mike Smith said that if he can settle Justify into a comfortable rhythm, the big chestnut should handle the 1½ miles without difficulty. Baffert also remained undefeated with Derby winners in the Preakness following Silver Charm, Real Quiet, War Emblem and American Pharoah.

Competitors Bravazo and Tenfold finished in second and third place, respectively, in the 1 3/16-mile race.

He added: "It's everyone dream to win the Kentucky Derby, and after you're blessed to win that all you dream about is winning the Triple Crown". And that was the presumed path for Audible. So it's an open question whether they'll throw such a formidable challenger at their potential Triple Crown victor.

Elliott Walden, president of racing operations for co-owner WinStar Farms, said when the horses disappeared it seemed like an eternity. The Kentucky Derby victor drew the seventh post in Saturday's race - the same post he had at the Derby.

Baffert said he's not thinking about potential challengers or about lessons he might have learned from American Pharoah or his previous three Triple Crown challengers who tried and failed. "You can only get away with that when you have a superior horse like he is".
