For the second time in three years, Thoroughbred horse racing trainer Bob Baffert has his eyes set on the Triple Crown. Justify, held off the charging horses from behind Saturday in capturing the Preakness in Baltimore. Now, it’s on to the Belmont on June ninth.
Kentucky Thorougbred Association Director Chauncey Morris says Baffert does have a bit of history on his side. “One trainer, if they’ve done it, there is a chance that they could do it again. Mr. Baffert is certainly a brilliant trainer,” said Morris.
