Triple Crown victor Justify will race at Del Mar Racetrack

'He looked like a bodyguard making sure nobody got close to Justify, ' Mike Repole, co-owner of Vino Rosso, who finished fourth, and Noble Indy, who finished last, told Daily Racing Form of Restoring Hope, who ended up finishing eighth.

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.

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.

All-sources wagering on the 150th Belmont Stakes itself, carded as Race 11 of 13, was $72,702,815 with on-track handle totaling $6,884,907.

Baffert, who trained both Restoring Hope and Justified, and Geroux both denied the allegation of collusion, saying that Restoring Hope simply couldn't be restrained.

The historic win makes Justify the 13th Triple Crown champion and the first to claim the title since American Pharoah did it in 2015.

Justify defied the hard post position along the rail, breaking well and taking the lead within seconds. "He was showing me the brilliance, superior horse".

Baffert was a little nervous after the first quarter-mile when Justify went out fast.

"It's been the longest, quickest journey", a hoarse-sounding Baffert said as light rain fell outside Justify's barn. 'He got really rank with him.

Meghan Markle played Rachel Zane on Suits for seven seasons. " She was still near the heart of the action", Little says. She also wore pink for her very first royal outing on May 22, as well as an nearly identical hat.

They expected him to try for the lead coming from the Number 1 post position in the Belmont.

Restoring Hope's owner, Gary West, was among those frustrated with the race. He's the first Triple Crown victor to face that many rivals in the 1½-mile Belmont. He's the first Triple Crown victor to face that many rivals in the 1 1/2-mile Belmont. 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".

"Our focus was on each race as they came up", Walden said after unveiling Justify's Triple Crown banner inside Belmont Park.

"Justify is a super horse".

Like he did in both his Kentucky (G1) and Preakness S. (G1) wins, Justify found his way to the front soon after the start of the Belmont and never looked back, turning away any challenge to take the "Test of the Champion" by almost two lengths.

But the owner says he hopes the NY racing stewards talk to Geroux about his ride.

The Belmont Stakes Day card generated an all-sources handle of $137,954,895 - the second-highest in one day New York Racing Association History behind Belmont Stakes Day in 2014.

'Nothing was brought to our attention, ' Lewandowski said.
