Tune in to hear how Justify is doing from his exercise rider, Humberto.
Elliott: This is Umberto, Justify’s exercise rider for E-Insider this week. Just want to let you guys see how well he is doing so I want to ask you [Umberto] how he is doing.
Humberto: Justify is doing great. He knows the track, he loves the track and he goes over it very, very well.
Elliott: What about before Preakness to now. Do you see any difference in how he is training?
Humberto: Well, I think he is very, very energetic right now. Obviously we’ve been easy with him and everything but he stills has a punch.
Elliott: So when everyone is concerned about him winning by only half a length in the Preakness and maybe he is getting tired, you don’t see that.
Humberto: No, I don’t see that. I think it’s going to help a lot that we have 3 weeks right now so he is going to be in shape.
Elliott: So what’s his move for you that you’ve got to watch out for?
Humberto: You know, right now since we’ve been going easy every time he takes off he starts bucking and wants to go. He’s like, “Let me go! Let me more!”
Elliott: So he likes to buck.
Humberto: Yes, he likes to buck.
Elliott: So where does he like to buck?
Humberto: In the beginning and in the middle when he feels good, that’s when he bucks and he wants to do more. He’s letting you know, “I need to do more.”
Elliott: Good. Well, there’s Justify coming, cooling out. Look at him looking at Humberto, he’s like “let’s go again.” He wants to go again.
Humberto: Trust me, today he just wanted to go.
Elliott: Well that’s great. Thank you Humberto, you’re doing a great job with him.
Humberto: Thank you guys for the opportunity.
