I just saw this -- interesting -- hope it's not serious.

I just saw that. O'Neil says it is possibly a career ending injury... How sad for everyone involved and the hope of a Triple Crown for all of us.

My work PC is crawling today so I've not yet found details. But I do hope that it's not serious.

Just saw this ... well poo! I hope he'll be ok.
|BarrelWannabe ||06-08-2012 12:47 PM |
And that's it. I give up on horse racing...

That's terrible! Will we ever get another Triple Crown win? but it is interesting after the information that was released about the drugging of some of Doug O'Neill's previous horses...

I’ll Have Another was scratched from Saturday’s Belmont Stakes, trainer Doug O’Neill said Friday on The Dan Patrick Show.
O’Neill said the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner had tendinitis in a front leg.
O’Neill said he’d likely rest I’ll Have Another for three months, and there was a chance the 3-year-old will never race again.
I'll Have Another was scheduled to break from the No. 11 post Saturday in his bid to complete the Triple Crown.
The Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner was made the 4-5 morning-line favorite for Saturday's race.
Eleven horses were entered Wednesday to take on I'll Have Another in his bid to win the Triple Crown for the first time since Affirmed swept the Derby, Preakness and Belmont in 1978. Only 11 horses have accomplished the feat, while 19 have been tripped up in the Belmont after winning the first two legs.

Thanks themacpack. I've also heard they will be holding a press conference at 1.00 pm EST so we should possibly find out more then.
I am glad they've scratched him.
