Justify was the winner of the 144th Kentucky Derby, which took place Saturday at Churchill Downs in Louisville.

The horse had the best odds to win the Derby at 5-2 going into the race.

It was the first time in 136 years that a colt who didn't race as a two-year-old won the Derby, breaking the Curse of Apollo.

Jockey Mike Smith rode Justify to the victory, and previously rode Giacomo to a win in the 2005 Kentucky Derby.

Rounding out the top five finishers of the race were Good Magic, Audible, Instilled Regard and My Boy Jack.

Justify will now have a shot at chasing the Triple Crown as it prepares for the 143rd Preakness Stakes, which will take place May 19 at Pimlico Race Course in Maryland.
