Belmont Stakes 2012: A Peek Into The Morning Routine Of I'll Have Another

With a win at the 2012 Belmont Stakes, I'll Have Another would become the first horse to win the triple crown since Affirmed in 1978. Routine is key when preparing for a big race. Judging by this look into the horse's morning schedule, it appears I'll Have Another's trainers are doing everything they can to make the horse as comfortable as possible.

Trainer Doug O'Neill spoke after the morning session, and expressed even more confidence in his horse.

"He looked great. He did his normal (routine). He jogged a half-mile and then galloped around a mile. He's maintained his energy level and his stride. He looked fantastic. He's fit, we just need to stay lucky and stay injury free."
