I'll Have Another Will Not Run in the Belmont - No Triple Crown This Year
After noticing some swelling in his left front tendon Thursday, the trainers polticed it overnight. He went out and galloped on the track again this morning, 06/08/2012, and the swelling came back. It was then that the unanimous and quick decision came from his team, I'll Have Another will not race or be ridden again. The swelling indicated the beginings of tendonitis and his owners and trainers did not want to risk his health. His trainer said today "It is far from tragic, but it is dissapointing." I am sad that he will not have the chance to make history, but respect the team's decision and care for their animal.
