I wanted Justify to win but when I watched the race I thought it looked a little fishy. It was like NASCAR where some drivers race in teams and help each other out throughout the race.

Losing owner calls for investigation into tactics used in Belmont Stakes

Mike Repole, co-owner of horses that finished fourth and last in Saturday's Belmont Stakes, told the New York Post on Sunday he hopes stewards will look into the tactics used by the jockey for the "other" horse trained by Bob Baffert.

Repole questioned Florent Geroux's ride on Restoring Hope, a stablemate of Belmont winner and 13th Triple Crown champion Justify, who is trained by Baffert for owner Gary West.

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

"It definitely seemed to me he was more of an offensive lineman than a racehorse trying to win the Belmont," Repole said, "and Justify was a running back trying to run for a touchdown."

Justify wins the Belmont Stakes and becomes the 13th horse in history to complete the Triple Crown 

Justify wins the Belmont Stakes and becomes the 13th horse to land the Triple Crown

The chestnut colt's wire-to-wire victory came in the 150st running of the Belmont Stakes Championship Horse Race at Belmont Park in Elmont, New York on Saturday. Jockey Mike Smith (bottom right) was overjoyed after crossing the finish line with a healthy lead. It was just the second time in 40 years for a horse to win the coveted Triple Crown, winning the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Belmont. It is the second Triple Crown for trainer Bob Baffert (top right). The mile-and-a-half track at Belmont, significantly longer than the first two races in the Triple Crown, is known as the test of champions and the hardest race in the series.
