Baffert horse accused of blocking for Justify

Racing officials won’t investigate possible Triple Crown high jinks

Other trainers seemed to take less of an issue with the way Restoring Hope started the race, including D. Wayne Lukas, who trained Bravazo - the horse that gave Justify a late scare in the Preakness but only finished sixth at Belmont. "Any Triple Crown victor is great for the sport".

"No, Restoring Hope has natural speed", Baffert said.

Mike Repole, the Queens native and co-owner of fourth-place Vino Rosso and last-place Noble Indy, was hoping stewards would question the "reckless riding" of Restoring Hope jockey Florent Geroux after he raced out of the gates to run behind and just outside of Justify. 'He got really rank with him.

Critics aren't buying the trainer's defense, though.

"It baffled me", Repole told the Daily Racing Form on Sunday. "He's now become a household name and I'm looking forward to his next race as much as you guys are", he said.

Crews underwent a successful burnout operation on the southwest side of the fire overnight that lasted until midnight, Eaby said. The combination of weather and fuel conditions created the potential for significant fire intensity and growth.

Following the race Geroux admitted that he struggled to keep control of Restroing Hope, while owner Gary West told the New York Post that he didn't like the way Restoring Hope raced and that he didn't understand Geroux's race strategy. "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. I will never know".

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.

'Justify's a freak, super horse, undefeated, incredible what he's done, ' Repole told DFR.

"He'll walk at least the next three days, as long as he'll allow us to", Barnes said.

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

But there's one element of the pictures that people aren't all that over-enthusiastic about: Prince George playing with a toy gun. My American side here, biased maybe because of everyday #gunviolence in United States of America , but my British side agrees.

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

"When he broke a step slow - he's kind of an aggressive horse to ride, he pulls very hard - I wanted to make sure I put him in the clear", Geroux said.

At 6-0, he's the second undefeated Triple Crown victor; he's the first to sweep the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont without racing at age 2; and he's the only horse to beat nine rivals in the Belmont with a Triple try on the line.

'If said violation is without such effect upon the finish of the race, penalty therefore may be applied against the offender only'.
