From high atop Big Bear Lake, where he is training at The Summit, undefeated world champion GENNADY “GGG” GOLOVKIN predicted that JUSTIFY would emerge as this year’s winner of Saturday’s Grade 1, $1 million Santa Anita Derby .

“Justify and I are alike. We are unbeaten, we are champions, and in training we both eat like a horse,” said Golovkin.

Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez added his horse sense: “I agree with Gennady that Justify is the best athlete in the field. And like Gennady, Justify is not just the favorite every time he competes, he is a winner. But Justify also has a great corner in trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Mike Smith, who are both Hall of Famers. Pound for pound, Justify is No. 1”
