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.

  1. Great idea letting us hear Justify’s exercise rider talk about how energetic this thoroughbred is. Does Justify have any nicknames? Thank you Winstar Farm for letting us Stablemates watch Justify throughout his bid for the Triple Crown. Go Justify!!!!!
