I’ll Have Another scratched from Belmont Stakes

Triple Crown hopeful retired after leg injury

ELMONT, N.Y. - The rumors began on Friday before dawn. Something was amiss in Barn 2 at Belmont Park with the most famous tenant, I’ll Have Another. The winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes had a 5:30 a.m. workout, watched closely by suddenly tight-lipped trainer Doug O’Neill.

At 11 a.m., the New York Racing Association issued a terse release. There would be a news conference with O’Neill and I’ll Have Another’s owner, J. Paul Reddam.
