Justify may have made the biggest splash over the weekend, defeating former Kentucky Derby favorite Bolt d’Oro by three lengths at Santa Anita Park. The Bob Baffert-trained colt was a 3/5 chalk in the field of seven, and posted an impressive 107 Beyer Speed Figure; Bolt d’Oro, who was 6/5 on the morning line, came up with a bloodied right front hoof – although it doesn’t appear to be a major issue.
Good Magic, the reigning Breeders’ Cup Juvenile champion, won the Blue Grass Stakes by 1-1/2 lengths over Flameaway, cashing in as the 8/5 favorite at Keeneland. The G2 Wood Memorial also went off Saturday, with Vino Rosso (4/1) beating Enticed by three lengths at Aqueduct in a breakthrough performance.
