I'll Have Another Scratched from Belmont Stakes

I'll Have Another, the horse running for the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, has officially been scratched from the race. Several reports from the New York Times are showing the horse will not run on Saturday. I'll Have Another was making a bid to become just the 12th horse ever to win the Triple Crown.

The Belmont Stakes is the third leg of the Triple Crown and is considered the toughest and most demanding when compared to the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. Only the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and Kentucky Oaks has higher attendance in North America for a stakes race. Named after August Belmont, the race was first run at Jerome Park in 1867. Horse racing legend Secretariat’s 31-length victory in the 1973 Belmont Stakes made him the 9th horse to capture the Triple Crown after establishing a the world record for a mile and a half on dirt 31-length victory at 2:24. Historically, twenty-nine horses have had a chance to win the Triple Crown going into theBelmont Stakes, but only eleven were able to meet the challenge.
