I’ll Have Another Not Running in Belmont Stakes
It looks like we will have to wait another year to get a Triple Crown winner as I’ll Have Another has been pulled from running the Belmont Stakes.
MCNBC Sports is reporting that the horse has a swollen left front tendon according to his trainer. Doctors were working with him this morning, had him gallop around and noticed that he is still tender in his front legs.
The last time we saw a Triple Crown winner was in 1978 and the entire horse-racing circuit had their eyes on I’ll Have Another to take home the honor this weekend. The news of him being scratched from the race sent shock waves through the horse racing community.
I’ll Have Another’s trainer, Doug O’Neill says the horse is sound and happy, but not worth risking an injury by having him run.
