“I hope he runs.”

Trainer Bob Baffert says he saw it coming, but not for a week or so after the Derby tumble; it takes a toll and you just never know about the turnaround following the first Saturday in May.

That doesn’t seem to be the case with Justify, who bounced back with relative ease after winning roses.

Hear from Baffert in the video.
