No Triple Crown for "I'll Have Another"

Post by BobCat on Fri Jun 08, 2012 1:09 pm

Scratched for the Belmont tomorrow. http://sports.yahoo.com/news/i-ll-have-another-out-of-the-belmont-stakes-and-out-of-the-triple-crown.html

At least they're looking out for the health of the horse.

So disappointing for everyone involved. I assume his owners will still make millions in stud fees, but it's just not the same, is it?

No, but this is a prime example of what can happen when you race a horse hard before he's physically mature enough to withstand the strain. I think if he hadn't damaged that tendon he'd have won the Belmont too. If he'd been about 2 years older he might not have damaged that tendon at all. Still, a fine figure of a horse from the pics I've seen.

I'm sure they'll make millions in stud fees off him.
