WinStar, which won its first Derby when Super Saver romped in the slop in 2010, owns the majority of the horse, and its president and chief executive, Elliott Walden, chose to name him Justify at the suggestion of an assistant.

Kentucky Derby is a win for Frost Brown Todd... Audible, who was foaled in Pine Plains, finished third. With his fifth victory, the 65-year-old snapped a tie for second and trails only Ben Jones with six. Last year's victor, Cloud Computing, won with a time of 1:55.98.

Hall of Fame jockey Mike Smith, who was riding his second Derby victor and his first since winning with Giacomo in 2005, said his mount has "unbelievable talent". "He says to me, 'Johnny, I got a horse I want to bet in the future book.' I said, 'I'll tell you what I'll do".

Despite the soggy conditions, the total attendance of 157,813 for the 14-race card marked the eighth-largest crowd in the race's history.
