Belmont Stakes: I’ll Have Another Will Scratch, Ending Triple Crown Bid

Trainer Doug O’Neill announced this morning on the Dan Patrick Radio Show that Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I’ll Have Another will scratch out of Saturday’s $1 million Belmont Stakes (G1).

The New York Racing Association announced a 1:00 ET press conference.

Rumors started swirling around on Twitter this morning that I’ll Have Another suffered a tendon injury.

O’Neill said on the radio this morning that the colt likely will be retired.

Clocker Bruno De Julio Tweeted this morning, “Reportedly @I’llhaveanother kicked wall and bucket when moved into unfamiliar surroundings. Guess some people got what they wanted.”

For those of you purchasing my Belmont Stakes Day Report, I have rewritten my Belmont Stakes analysis to reflect the late change.

Update at 12:23 ET: O’Neill told the Daily Racing Form, ““He’s got tendonitis in his left front tendon. He’s not 100 percent and I ain’t taking any chances.”
