Kentucky Derby winner Justify wins Preakness

Justify won first prize in the Preakness and will now gun for the Triple Crown.

Justify came in first in the Preakness Stakes Saturday and will vie to become the 13th winner of the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes next.

The sloppy grounds of Baltimore's Pimlico Race Course saw Justify -- who took first in the Kentucky Derby earlier in the month -- cross the finish line in just over 1:36.

The Triple Crown was last won in 2015 by American Pharoah, the first in 37 years.
