With Saturday's Belmont Stakes closing in quickly, I'll Have Another now has one more obstacle in becoming the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.
My Adonis, owned by George and Lori Hall, has entered the race and will be rode by jockey Ramon Dominguez. The Hall's are also the owner of the Belmont Stakes champion of 2011, Ruler On Ice.
According to NYRA.com, this wasn't a decision that was made weeks ago by any stretch.
“We came to this decision only a few hours ago,” said Lori Hall. “Over the last seven to 10 days he’s really shown to be eating well and to looking the part. We’ve just kind of kept in the back of our minds that this could be a possibility, and [trainer] Kelly [Breen] called us today and said, ‘I’m getting that good vibe.'”
It should be an incredible 1 1/2 miles with all the anticipation and buildup going into Saturday.
