No Triple Crown Winner This Year – I’ll Have Another Is Scratched From The Belmont

Not since Affirmed in 1978 has a thoroughbred won the Triple Crown. I’ll Have Another was poised to be the first horse in 34 years to win the Triple Crown thanks to thrilling victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, but the three-year-old colt is out of the Belmont and will not run tomorrow. Trainer Doug O’Neill said the horse was scratched because of a left leg injury that was discovered after a workout very early this morning. After the workout, I’ll Have Another was said to be ready to go, but O’Neill detected the beginnings of some tendinitis and decided to scratch the colt from tomorrow’s race.

Many other horses have won the first two legs of the Triple Crown and lost at the Belmont, but this is only the third time in Triple Crown history that a horse has won the first two legs and failed to run in the Belmont. It happened twice in the 1930s. It is likely that I’ll Have Another’s racing days are over according to reports.
