I’ll Have Another Scratched From Belmont Stakes, Dullahan New Favorite
I’ll Have Another’s bid for the first triple crown in 34 years ended Friday when the colt was scratched from the Belmont Stakes and retired with a swollen tendon.
The scratch marks the first time a Derby and Preakness winner did not run the Belmont since 1936.
Obviously, it’s a big emotional let down for the team of I’ll Have Another and a major disappointment for the sport.
Dullahan was promoted to the Belmont favorite and i thought he had a great shot of winning even before i’ll have another’s injury.
If you recall Dullahan won the Belmont Stakes, and finished third at the Kentucky Derby after a late surge and skipped out on the preakness… so you figure dullahan has plenty of energy saved up for the third leg of the triple crown.
Dullahan is at 9 to 5 odds. He was the most impressive horse in last sunday’s final workouts.
Bodemeister, who finished runner up to I’ll Have Another in the first two legs skipped the Belmont. The second choice listed now is Union Rags at 3 to 1 odds.
