Aaron Levine, sports director for Seattle FOX affiliate KCPQ, showed his support for California Chrome, the racehorse vying to win the first triple crown since 1978.
Before officials at Belmont Park said the winner of the Kentucky Derby and last weekend’s Preakness Stakes can wear a nasal strip in their race, Levine took to the airwaves to give his opinion about the initial decision not to allow the horse to wear the strip.
Levine’s protest probably had no influence in the ruling being overturned. According to CNN it was more likely New York State Gaming Commission Equine Medical Director Scott E. Palmer who told Belmont officials, “Equine nasal strips do not enhance equine performance nor do they pose a risk to equine health or safety and as such do not need to be regulated,”
Levine ended his commentary by saying, “Then again I don’t think it improves my performance as an anchor.” Watch the video after the jump.
