I’ll Have Another has officially been ruled out of Belmont Stakes according to trainer Doug O’Neil. The colt had a chance to become the first horse in 34 years to conquer the Triple Crown, but a leg injury won’t allow that to happen.
As you can expect, tons of horse racing fans were very disappointed to hear the news. Many of whom wanted the opportunity to see the first Triple Crown of their lifetime.
We’re happy that the trainers of I’ll Have Another were smart enough not to risk serious injury to the horse. At the same time, we’re also extremely disappointed that we’ll have to wait yet another year to MAYBE see a Triple Crown winner.
