NEW YORK (AP) — Another morning, another gallop around Belmont Park for Triple Crown hopeful I’ll Have Another.
A day after galloping a mile of the 112-mile oval in the rain, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner galloped just under a mile Saturday with exercise rider Humberto Gomez aboard. The only difference was the weather.
Assistant trainer Jack Sisterson said I’ll Have Another “could tell the sun was out. He went fantastic over the track again this morning. So far, so good.”
I’ll Have Another will attempt to become the 12th Triple Crown champion in the Belmont Stakes on June 9.
Also, Dullahan had a final workout at Churchill Downs, going a mile in 1:43. The third-place Derby finisher will be one of I’ll Have Another’s top challengers in the Belmont.
