"I'll Have Another" scratched from Belmont

"I'll Have Another" has been scratched from Saturday's Belmont Stakes, ending the latest hope of horse racing's first Triple Crown winner since 1978, according to several media reports.

"'I'll Have Another' is officially out of the Belmont," trainer Doug O'Neill said on the Dan Patrick Show, "It's not tragic, but it's a huge disappointment."

O'Neill said "I'll Have Another" looked to have the beginning of an injury and therefore can't run in Saturday's race.  O'neill added that the horse's career is probably finished.
