    what a disappointment.
    I'll Have Another had a great chance to become the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.
    thoroughbreds are very fragile animals and unfortunately subject to these kind of career ending injuries.

    I don't care what anyone says about that trainer and I don't care what his history is. I just gained a bunch of respect for him for putting the horse's health above potential glory and lots and lots of money.

    I agree...yeah, Doug O'Neill may have his reputation about him and what others say about him, but for him and the owner to do this before the horse can be injured further and not run him and retire him was the thing to do here. I believed I'll Have Another would have won the race today if he hadn't gotten the injury, but we will have to wait for another horse to try for the Triple Crown.

    Great race. Congrats to Michael MAtz & Union Rags. Poor Bob Baffert, second in each of the 3 triple crown races.
