    1978 continues its status as last Triple Crown year; 34 years now.

    Unhappy

    I just heard!!!!! NO Triple Crown this year! But on a good note better to be scratched today than have something ugly happen tomorrow.

    I am still disappointed though!

    Agreed. I immediately thought about Barbaro.

    Dan Patrick Show@dpshow

    O’Neill was also asked if I’ll Have Another’s racing career is finished. “If I had to wager…yes,” he said


    Doug O'Neill: "I'll Have Another is officially out of the Belmont."

    O'Neill said the horse had a "little problem with his left front leg." There's the "start of some tendinitis." Doesn't want to take a chance

    O'Neill said of horse's scratch: "Its a bummer but far from tragic." He'll "be seeing a lot of mares and smoking a lot of cigarettes."

    Very saddened by this news. I loved watching I'll Have Another win the Derby and the Preakness, and was so hoping for a Triple Crown. He is a great racehorse. Hopefully, his injury will improve quickly. Cheers to I'll Have Another-may you have a long and happy retirement!!!

    Thanks wfgodot for posting that clip of Big Red. Just what I needed to cheer me up after the sad news about I'll Have Another. Even though I'm disappointed that IHA won't compete for the crown, I couldn't be happier that his people decided to act in his best interest. It would be nice if more owners and/or trainers put their horses first....

    Oh how sad.. I picked Dullahan in the Kentucky Derby, (placed 3rd)( because he is a come from behind kinda a horse, like Secretariat.) Hubby picked Bodemaster....(placed 2nd) Now Dullahan is favorite!

    We never did hear anymore about the trainer that was found dead the next day. They sure hushed that up.

    Here is some useless trivia for you. Paul Reddam was one of my philosophy professors in college. I also worked for him at his stable-farm in Redondo to help pay for my school.

    Well, here's something that probably no one here knows about me.

    I am a bettor on the ponies. Not a week goes by that I don't wager. I've won big and I've lost big.

    I was exercising this morning at around 10:00 am central time and I was watching TVG. I seriously fell off my precor machine when they announced the scratch of IHA.

    I am so proud of the connections for taking care of this wonderful horse and not running him with an injury. I am deeply saddened that we won't have a chance at the triple crown, but, hell, there's always next season.
