Did Justify get help from another horse in its Triple Crown victory?

Racing officials won’t investigate possible Triple Crown high jinks

People in racing with knowledge of the deal said it included a bonus of about $25 million were Justify to win the Triple Crown, which he then went on to do, and that it also allowed the multiple owners to retain some shares in the horse when he begins his career as a sire (a provision that also has benefited Zayat to the tune of millions of dollars).

"It was meant to be", Baffert said.

Here's a look at horse racing's Triple Crown. "He is a Triple Crown victor and he's undefeated", said Repole, emphasizing his admiration for the powerful, 6-for-6 colt.

Mike Repole, co-owner of horses that finished fourth (Vino Rosso) and last (Noble Indy) in the Belmont Stakes, advanced that idea on Sunday.

'Bob just wanted me to get good position, he wanted the horse to be forwardly placed, second or third, you don't see too many closers from Baffert, ' Geroux told the racing magazine.

While saying Justify was the deserving victor, Repole told reporter Tom Pedula he felt like Restoring Hope, a 37-1 shot, ran interference for Justify against other horses in the race.

While Justify and Mike Smith, his Hall of Fame rider, smoothly accelerated after breaking from the rail to seize the early lead, Geroux rode vigorously to hustle Restoring Hope toward the front.

Assistant trainer Jimmy Barnes walked Justify outside Barn 33.

"I'd never thought I'd be this close to the most famous race horse in the world", King said.

'Had I known better, the first eighth of a mile I would have thought it was a quarter-horse race, not the mile-and-a-half Belmont. Maybe the horse was completely out of control and Florent had no choice.

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.

The three-year-old colt, bred by British Columbia's John Gunther, entered the Grade 1, $1.5 million race undefeated, and sped to a convincing 1 ¾-length win over runner up, Gronkowski.

Doug Bredar, the agent for Geroux, said he has no comment and Geroux has no comment. None of the other nine horses had a chance to catch him.

Despite the allegations, New York Gaming Commission steward Steve Lewandowski told the Daily Racing Form that they don't plan to speak to Geroux about the race.
