The morning after Johan Santana pitched the first no-hitter in New York Mets history, the trainer of Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another showed up for his Belmont Stakes news briefing sporting a Mets cap.
A loose horse nearly collied with I’ll Have Another at Thursday’s Belmont Stakes practice. The Triple Crown hopeful avoided disaster.
Doug O’Neill says he’s dismayed that Secretariat’s former owner criticized the connections of Triple Crown candidate I’ll Have Another for employing him as the horse’s trainer.
Trainer Doug O’Neill will take an unconventional path to a Triple Crown bid by using a series of strong gallops rather than formal workouts to prepare for the Belmont Stakes.

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.
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:
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.
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.
Ruler On Ice posted a huge upset in the Belmont Stakes, taking the lead from Preakness winner Shackleford in the stretch and winning the final leg of the Triple Crown.
The final leg of the Triple Crown features not only the rubber match between Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom and Preakness winner Shackleford on Saturday, but the top seven finishers from the Derby for the first time as well.
Nothing like a little Triple Crown trash talk a few days before the Belmont. The owner of Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom fired the first salvo at a news conference in Manhattan on Tuesday, dissing Preakness winner Shackleford’s chances of winning Saturday’s final leg of the Triple Crown.
