Justify: George Soros Reportedly Part Owner of Triple Crown Contender

Jerry Bailey predicts biggest Belmont challenge facing Justify

Jerry Bailey predicts biggest Belmont challenge facing Justify

The Belmont is the longest of the Triple Crown races at 1½ miles over a demanding surface known as "Big Sandy". Two companies, SF Bloodstock and SF Racing Group, are controlled by Soros Fund Management, but it is not clear how much of the Soros fortune is invested in horse racing.

The journey of another superhorse to the Belmont makes the horse racing world plenty happy, even if there isn't the same buzz about ending the Triple Crown drought that followed American Pharoah's run.

Justify's owners reportedly sold the horse's breeding rights for $60 million before the Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown.

Tenfold is by two-time Horse of the Year Curlin, who lost the 2007 Belmont Stakes by a nose to the filly Rags to Riches, and out of a mare by Tapit, who has sired three of the past four Belmont Stakes winners.

Hoppertunity will be joined in the Brooklyn by Paul Pompa, Jr.'s homebred Hard Study, a 5 ½-length victor of the 1 3/8-mile Flat Out over the local course on May 4, and hard-knocking veteran War Story, exiting a close runner-up finish in the Grade 2 Charles Town Classic on April 21. "But that's not going to happen", Avello said. When I worked him after the Preakness, American Pharoah, when he would breathe, he was like he was a machine. Some of those horses are just made a little different. He wasn't a 2-year-old champion bred and built to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont.

Will Justify win the Triple Crown? No is minus 120.

"He looked like he was getting over it really well", Baffert said after the gallop.

With FCC Set to End Net Neutrality, Senate Democrats Urge House Vote
Both the House and President Donald Trump need to sign off on the CRA for it to take effect. Senate Democrats expressed similar sentiments in their letter , which was sent on Thursday.

For exacta, trifecta and superfecta players, Avello suggests using Hofburg, Tenfold, Justify and Vino Rosso, with Noble Indy or Gronkowski in a third or fourth spot only. "And this horse is getting there".

So, if you want to bet against Justify, here are three alternatives. "The problem with using him in the first spot is there's no payoff".

"Had an very bad race in the Derby".

The Karl Watson, Mike Pegram, and Paul Weitman color-bearer also boasts back-to-back victories in the Grade 2 San Antonio in 2016-17 and a half-length win in the 2014 Grade 1 Clark Handicap, among others through five seasons of racing. I am rooting for that to happen.

"He's a horse you certainly have to consider". "He's a very intelligent horse". If he runs his race, he's just a superior animal. He didn't run in the Preakness.

"This is (Justify trainer) Bob Baffert's second horse in here".

I am a huge fan of Justify.
