I'll Have Another Scratched From Belmont

NEW YORK (AP) - I'll Have Another's bid for a Triple Crown ended with the shocking news that the colt was out of the Belmont Stakes due to a swollen left front tendon.

According to Dennis O'Neill, brother of trainer Doug O'Neill, the horse galloped Friday morning and after a veterinary scan, the tendon seemed "kind of tender."

O'Neill told The Associated Press that, "the horse is sound and happy, but it's not worth it."

I was looking forward to seeing another Triple Crown Winner again. I remember seeing several but it's been awhile. I just wish the horse could run but if they think it would hurt him I guess they made the right decision. I guess I just go "have another" for for "I'll Have Another" !! Too bad!
