Liberal billionaire donor George Soros’s company is a part owner of Justify, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner hoping to with the Belmont Stakes and the triple crown on Saturday.
Justify would become just the 13th such winner in history with a victory at the New York racetrack.
The article goes on to state the following:
The New York Times reports that a company controlled by top employees of Soros, Soros Fund Management, owns 15 percent of Justify, the horse seeking a third title this year at the Belmont Stakes. Soros is a longtime investor in race horses through the SF Bloodstock and SF Racing Group operations.
Soros’ group does not actually own racing rights to the horse, which it sold along with racing rights to third-place Kentucky Derby finisher Audible quickly after acquiring them. Instead, Soros’ group hopes to capitalize on Justify’s increasing value should the horse win this weekend.
The remainder of Justify’s breeding rights are owned by U.S.-based WinStar Farm and the China Horse Club, and could net tens of thousands of dollars annually if Justify were to go on to win the Belmont Stakes on Saturday.
