FIND A STATION Dan Patrick Show
Monday: Boomer Esiason

Doug O’Neill joined the show to break news  on Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another.

“I’ll Have Another is officially out of the Belmont,” O’Neill said. “He galloped great yesterday and then in the afternoon he had some filling in the left front leg. This morning he looked perfect. I took him out and did a little something with him. After training that swelling came back. I had the vet come over. He scanned the left front leg and he’s got the start of some tendentious going on in that front leg. So he’s not 100 percent and we aren’t taking any chances and pulling him out it’s not tragic but it’s a huge disappointment.”

O’Neill wasn’t sure how the injury occurred, but weighed in on what might have happened: “Usually these types of injuries they either hit themselves. Like a hind foot came up and wacked him in his front left leg or just hyperextended from his beautiful long stride and maybe just strained himself from that stride. But it’s just a freakish thing.”

O’Neill said I’ll Have Another looks fine. He said he will walk the horse in front of the media at his 1 p.m. ET press conference to show everyone that the horse is doing well. But he has the beginning of the injury and they can’t run him at Belmont on Saturday.

Dan asked O’Neill if I’ll Have Another has raced his last horse. “If I had to wager … I would say yes,” O’Neill said.
