BALTIMORE (AP) I’ll Have Another poked his head out of his stall, started nibbling on his nameplate tacked to a wall and looked up at all the people watching his every move.
Yes, I’ll Have Another came out of his thrilling Preakness victory over Bodemeister in ”super shape,” trainer Doug O’Neill said Sunday, and now it’s on to New York for a Triple Crown try in the Belmont Stakes on June 9.
”We’re ready. Bring it on,” O’Neill said as he held court outside the stall of his Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner. ”I can’t put into words how incredible it is. We’re just on Cloud 9. It’s super exciting.”
The colorful and controversial trainer returned to his home base in California later Sunday, and has begun making plans for the trip to New York in the next week or so. I’ll Have Another, meanwhile, was loaded onto a horse van en route for Belmont Park. O’Neill’s assistant, Jack Sisteron, will oversee the chestnut colt until O’Neill and the rest of his team arrive.
