Justify Heel Healed Ahead of Preakness Stakes?

Following a minor heel issue, the Kentucky Derby winner Justify went to the track Thursday at Churchill Downs and was looking fantastic.

Justify's trainer Bob Baffert insisted his horse's heel was just fine.

“He’s had a cracked heel, which is what Bob alluded to with the scratches,” Walden said. “And he’s had that on and off. But that’s just typical. A lot of horses get that.”

Baffert said Thursday, "We were treating for a cracked heel, but it never developed into one."

Justify showed no ill-effects during an easy gallop on the Churchill Downs track just after 7:30 a.m.
 
“He was ready to get back out to the track,” Barnes said. “He was getting a little pushy in his stall, and you could tell it was just time for him to get back. . . . Each day he’s gotten better and we were 100 percent. So, no reason to hold my breath. He just bruised his heel, and he had a little bit of a cracked heel there, also, which with just a little bit of walking, that went away.”

PricePerHead.com began offering its customized Preakness Stakes odds for Bookies and agents with Justify's Triple Crown generic price at +140.
