If Justify is feeling any fatigue in the runup to his Triple Crown bid, he did not show it Tuesday morning when he breezed a half mile in a brisk 46.8 seconds at Churchill Downs in Louisville, Ky. The hard workout was Justify's first since he won the Preakness on May 19, and he might breeze again early next week as he prepares for the June 9 Belmont Stakes . Trainer Bob Baffert had flown in from California to observe the workout. "American Pharoah looked like that," he said, referring to his 2015 Triple Crown winner. "That's what you want to see with another week to go before the Belmont." Baffert also flew in one of his favorite riders, Martin Garcia, to handle the workout, though Mike Smith will be aboard Justify in the Belmont. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness champion could face as many as 10 horses in the 1½-mile endurance test as he attempts to become the 13th Triple Crown winner in history. That field of challengers is led by returning Derby contenders Bravazo, Hofburg, Vino Rosso and Noble Indy and third-place Preakness finisher Tenfold. The post-position draw will be held next Tuesday at Citi Field , home of the New York Mets.
