The owners of other entries in the Belmont Stakes have called for an investigation into the race, claiming that Justify trainer Bob Baffert may have used another horse in his stable to run interference for the Triple Crown victor.

The owner for both fourth-place finisher Vino Rosso and last-place horse Noble Indy, Mike Repole, said Restoring Hope's strategy did not play to his strengths and therefore raised red flags. If jockey Florent Geroux thought he was in jeopardy of being squeezed out of the first flight aboard Restoring Hope, that could provide cover for his whoop-dee-do aggression. "It definitely seemed to me he was more of an offensive lineman than a racehorse trying to win the Belmont", says Repole of Restoring Hope, "and Justify was a running back trying to run for a touchdown". My horse broke a step slow and Justify was already in front of me'.

"Justify was on his game that day, so I don't think - on that day - anyone was going to beat him".

With Justify's victory in Saturday's Belmont Stakes, Baffert now has a record 15 victories in Triple Crown races (five in the Kentucky, seven in the Preakness and three in the Belmont). On one side of this deal were two of the horse's owners - WinStar and China Horse Club - along with SF Racing, a group backed by George Soros, the billionaire owner and philanthropist, that sold its ownership share of Justify but still owns some of the horse's breeding rights.

"I'd never thought I'd be this close to the most famous race horse in the world", King said. West fumed over Geroux's ride when asked for comment by the New York Post. Maybe the horse was completely out of control and Florent had no choice. "But I said, I don't know, three is a good number".

Steve Lewandowski, the New York Gaming Commission steward, said there was no plan to question Geroux, the Daily Racing Form reported.

Preparations at Churchill Downs include posting new signs on trainer Bob Baffert's barn 33 that identify Justify as the 2018 Triple Crown victor just below the 2015 sign for American Pharoah. "His only chance was to be up near the lead in the first wave because he's like a one-dimensional horse".
