2012 Preakness: I'll Have Another Goes Through First Preakness Practice

Fresh off his Kentucky Derby win, I'll Have Another went through his first practice session at the Pimlico Race Course Thursday.

I'll Have Another galloped around the track ridden by Jonny Garcia and under the watch of trainer Doug O'Neill. It was the first time I'll Have Another was allowed to gallop since winning the Kentucky Derby. He went through his exercise routine without issue. Afterward, O'Neill said he was pleased with the first practice session as I'll Have Another prepares for the Preakness Stakes, via Pimlico.com.

“I thought he looked fantastic,” O’Neill said. “One of the great things about I’ll Have Another is he’s got such a beautiful, long stride. You saw it here today. He’s maintained that on whatever surface he’s on. That’s what I was looking for. I just wanted to see him really stretch and he did. He looks no worse for the wear. He looks great.”

I'll Have Another will attempt to win the second leg of a possible Triple Crown on May 19.
