2012 Belmont Stakes: PETA Wants 24-Hour Surveillance On I'll Have Another

In the walk of Doug O’Neill, trainer for Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another, being suspended by the California Racng Board for allegedly giving a horse an illegal performance-enhancer, PETA has requested a 24-hour watch on I’ll Have Another leading up to the Belmont.

“Doug O’Neill’s shocking record of drug violations risks horses’ lives and damages the already tarnished image of thoroughbred racing,” says PETA Senior Vice President Lisa Lange. “Governor Cuomo can put substance behind his promises by telling racing officials not to allow I’ll Have Another out of their sight for a minute.”

PETA (People For The Ethical Treatment Of Animals) sent its request to New York’s governor because the state recently took control of the New York Racing Association (NYRA).

PETA wants I’ll Have Another housed in a ‘secure detention barn’ monitored by state racing officials, as well as blood testing, controls on medications given to the horse and also asks that food and water be supplied by an independent source.
