Despite vigorously denying he gave one of his horses an illegal performance-enhancing mixture, trainer Doug O’Neill was suspended 45 days — a ban that won’t take effect until after his superstar colt, I’ll Have Another, tries to win the Triple Crown.
Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another jogged around the 1½-mile Belmont Park oval for a second day in a row, and is scheduled to resume galloping on Friday.
After watching I’ll Have Another’s victories in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, Cauthen thinks the Triple Crown drought might finally come to an end in the Belmont Stakes.
I’ll Have Another came out of the Preakness in “super” shape, and trainer Doug O’Neill says it’s on to New York for a Triple Crown try in the Belmont Stakes.
Kentucky Derby winner I’ll Have Another wins the Preakness Stakes.
The 2012 Preakness Stakes is all but here, the 137th running of the second jewel of the prestigious Triple Crown.
If the trends hold, the winner of this year’s Preakness will be one of the six that ran in the Derby, and will go off at odds of less than 4-to-1. Here is a closer look at the 11 who will line up for the 2012 Preakness Stakes:
Craig read Jerry’s apology on the air and it appears he is not out of the woods just yet.
Needless to say the guys want their money. Boomer first suggested Jerry take out a second mortgage before threatening to saw off his leg — an idea Craig seemed to like.
‘ll Have Another caught Bodemeister down the stretch and pulled away in the final furlong on Saturday to win the Kentucky Derby.
The track superintendent at Churchill Downs cancelled morning training for the Kentucky Derby and its 13-race card after a night of thunderstorms.
This year’s Derby is interesting because there are eight to 10 horses that can win without surprise, which makes this race a hard one to handicap. But, hey, Monzo is going to give it a shot anyway.
Boomer and Craig acknowledged that they have very limited horse knowledge before proceeding to offer their ‘award-winning’ picks-picks-picks.
It remains to be seen how the class of 2012 will perform after this year’s Triple Crown, but few would argue against the collective talent of this year’s crop of 3-year-olds.
Grammy winner Mary J. Blige is expected to sing the national anthem at this year’s Kentucky Derby.
