Losing owner calls for investigation into tactics used in Belmont Stakes

Regardless of how it happened, Justify is now a Triple Crown champion, and Restoring Hope has a future as an offensive lineman.

Six of the 10 horses in the Belmont were Keeneland sales graduates.

A horse must win all three races to achieve the Triple Crown. "He's so gifted. He's sent from heaven".

Baffert also trained Triple Crown victor American Pharoah in 2015.

Other Triple Crown winners include Sir Barton (1919), War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941), Count Fleet (1943), Assault (1946), Citation (1948) and Secretariat (1973). Americans love dynasties, whether in politics, sports, or musical acts, and the Triple Crown is racing's greatest dynastic concept, an institution that predates every major championship event except the World Series. Now, three years after American Pharoah ended the sport's 37-year drought, he did it again. He's just an unbelievable horse.

Was Florent Geroux riding shotgun on long shot Restoring Hope to help stablemate Justify win Saturday's Belmont Stakes? But Smith turned it into an advantage, gunning Justify to the lead and defying any horse to challenge.

Approaching the quarter pole, with the crowd on its feet and screaming, Gronkowski was hitting his best stride from far back, picking off a half-dozen rivals to gain third even as Vino Rosso was moving into second.

Asked Saturday after the race about the idea of using Restoring Hope as a "wing man" out of the gates for Justify, Baffert downplayed it.

Repole also co-owns 10th-place finisher Noble Indy with WinStar Farm, the majority owner of Justify. Blink and you would have missed him, for all his social media presence and the blanket Justify coverage from NBC since his win in the Santa Anita Derby.

Justify certified his place in racing immortality when he won 150th Belmont S. (G1), defeating Gronkowski by almost to length to become the 13th victor of the historic Triple Crown.

After landing at Louisville International Airport, Justify was loaded onto a van for a three-mile police escort to the backstretch of Churchill Downs. "He looked like a bodyguard making sure nobody got close to Justify". We're looking forward to sharing him more.

A representative for the New York Gaming Commission told the Daily Racing Form there is no plan to speak to Geroux.
