What Happened to the Belmont Stakes?

by Kevin Sutcliffe

I’ll Have Another was looking to become the first Triple Crown Winner since Affirmed won the title in 1978. The Triple Crown title is something like nothing else in sports…winning three races, against the game’s toughest, at three completely different tracks in just five weeks and I’ll Have Another was up to the challenge. However, in a completely unexpected turn of events, I’ll Have Another was scratched from the 144th Belmont Stakes on Friday Afternoon as tendonitis in his front left leg caused the muscle to swell.
