NEW YORK — I’ll Have Another’s bid for a Triple Crown ended with the shocking news that the colt was out of the Belmont Stakes due to a swollen left front tendon.

According to Dennis O’Neill, brother of trainer Doug O’Neill, the horse galloped Friday morning and after a veterinary scan, the tendon seemed “kind of tender.”

O’Neill told The Associated Press that, “the horse is sound and happy, but it’s not worth it.”

Give the owner and trainer credit

as they care more about the horse than winning the triple crown. My hat is off to them.
