I’ll Have Another Out at the Belmont Stakes
Those planning to watch the Belmont Stakes tomorrow in hopes of seeing the first Triple Crown winner since 1978 are about to be disappointed.
USA Today reports that I’ll Have Another, the horse what won both the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness has been pulled from tomorrow’s race.
His trainer Dan O’Neill appeared on the Dan Patrick Show and said the horse has the beginning signs of tendonitis in its front leg, and they don’t want to risk worsening the injury.
Speculation is that the horse will not race again.
The horse was the favorite to win at tomorrow’s race, which suddenly seems much less exciting.
However, if you still plan to watch it, I’d recommend taking a trip over to Monmouth Park to watch it from their Patio Teletheater.
Buy yourself a floppy hat (because when else can you get away with that?), place a few bets, and enjoy the race at the Shore’s Greatest Stretch.
