Leading up to the much anticipated Belmont Stakes, there has been some inquiry as to whether the Triple Crown contender will be allowed to wear a nasal strip as he has done in his last six wins. According to Sherman, CALIFORNIA CHROME's trainer, the horse may not run in the Belmont if he is not able to wear the nasal strip.
In years past there has also been controversy regarding the nasal strips, in particular, in the running of the Belmont Stakes in 2012, I'LL HAVE ANOTHER was banned from wearing the nasal strip by the New York Racing Association.
