The connections of I’ll Have Another announced that they will scratch their Triple Crown candidate from Saturday’s Belmont Stakes. It was discovered after his gallop on Friday that the winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes was developing tendonitis in his front leg. The colt’s owner, Paul Reddam, announced in a press conference on Friday afternoon that I’ll Have Another will be retired.
The Preakness Stakes, the second leg of the Triple Crown, will be contested at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore on Saturday. Six colts who ran in the Kentucky Derby will return for the Preakness including the top two finishers I’ll Have Another and Bodemeister.
