Bob Baffert horse Restoring Hope accused of blocking for Justify

Elliott Walden of WinStar Farm, one of the primary owners along with China Horse Club & SF Racing, declined to comment on the deal to ESPN.

"But they all ran well, but that's all you can ask for, that your horses do well, but they still have to show up". Assistant trainer Jimmy Barnes, groom Eduardo "Lalo" Luna, and exercise rider Humberto Gomez accompanied Justify on the van ride and flight. And, not for nothing, Seattle Slew raced six times and won six times in the 95 days between his 3-year-old debut in March and his triumph in the Belmont Stakes.

Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert, who saddled American Pharoah to end a 37-year-old Triple Crown drought in 2015, thus became the second trainer along with "Sunny Jim" Fitzsimmons to train two Triple Crown winners, with Fitzsimmons having conditioned Gallant Fox (1930) and his son, Omaha (1935).

Justify is the first Triple Crown victor to face that many rivals in Belmont. "The thing about him I can not believe [is] the way he walked in the paddock yesterday".

Repole did say that his suspicions don't diminish his respect for the mighty Justify, just the 13th horse in history to win the Triple Crown.

Baffert had fretted after Justify drew the No. 1 post, a spot he detests for his horses. Gronkowski finished second, 1 3/4 lengths back, and Hofburg was third.

More than 15 million viewers were watching NBC's Belmont Stakes broadcast on Saturday as NBC Sports' Larry Collmus called the race, finishing with a flourish.

In a weird trend dating back to 1930, in years horse racing sees a Triple Crown - Notre Dame football enjoys a successful season. After the race, Smith said he didn't have much to do. He won the Kentucky Derby by 2-1/2 lengths after racing close to the pace for the first three quarters.

"It baffled me", Repole told the Daily Racing Form on Sunday. Sure, fans would love to see him run in the Travers, especially after Belmont runner-up Gronkowski learns to break, and in the Breeders' Cup Classic at Churchill Downs, where Justify could take a dramatic Derby curtain call.

After running over sloppy tracks in the first two jewels of the Triple Crown - the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stakes - Justify had a fast strip at Belmont Park and got home in 2:28.18. "And I am so happy for Mike Smith".
