The New York Times reported in the days leading up to the race that Soros’s investment firm, Soros Fund Management, is behind SF Bloodstock and SF Racing Group, an international breeding and racing operation started in 2008. Executives from the investment firm oversee the breeding and horse ownership businesses. The operation owns 15 percent of the breeding rights to Justify, who is descended from previous Triple Crown winners  Seattle Slew and Secretariat.

The group prefers to operate out of the spotlight, according to the Times.

Soros is a Hungarian-American Jewish business magnate and philanthropist, who donated millions to Democratic candidates including presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and who Is considered an enemy of the state in Hungary for his support of resettling refugees.
