Just a note of interest. The groom of Justify also had American Pharaoh and Arrogate.

Hey guys, I saw a 3yo today, his name is Justify and it's too early to tell, but he may be a pretty good colt. Wanted to start a thread, but saw this had already been started...

Is it too early or premature to say that there isn't a faster three year old in the country currently running than this guy? I hope that he can just stay healthy and sound so we may get the opportunity to see him do some special things.

He has run really fast twice now, not only was that final time quick but it was also a very fast pace.

That being said he has outclassed and had two PT in a row, compared to say McKinzie and BoltDOro who have both had some adversity.

Today's trip only looked perfect because he is so fast IMO. He was three wide all the way around the first turn when the pace was (I think) fast. Those are the kinds of horses I like to bet back when they don't finish well.

Where will he be headed in search of those valuable Derby Points? Will he be venturing out to Sunland Park for the Sunland Derby on March 25th, or, will he be staying at home for the Santa Anita Derby? Any thoughts?....

I would think SA or Arkansas Derby. Sunland is too close IMO.

I agree. I saw the first turn and said to myself "no longer 1/9", but it didn't seem to phase him vs. these.

That said, it wasn't the toughest race. The 'loose' leader never looked comfortable or particularly scary, and Shivermetimbers? the other E/P didn't exactly respond to move with him.

He (obviously) looks great. The way the Derby has been run since the point system weeded out some of the sprint stakes qualifiers, he doesn't appear to have to really prove a lot of versatility. He's not yet run in a stakes race, but in terms of ability, he looks like a Derby favorite who should win or contend unless there is an extreme pace meltdown.
