The 2012 Belmont Stakes got a little tougher for I'll Have Another on Tuesday night when My Adonis was announced as a late entrant before Wednesday's post position drawing. My Adonis' owners are George and Lori Hall, the same owners who won the 2011 Belmont Stakes with Ruler On Ice.
My Adonis was an entrant in the Kentucky Derby, but none of the 20 horses that took part in the race were scratched, leaving the horse on the outside looking in. Instead, My Adonis went on to take third place in the Canonero II Stakes.
Kelly Breen trains the horse, while Ramon Dominguez is expected to be the jockey.
With 12 total horses in the field, I'll Have Another's pursuit of the Triple Crown becomes harder as the time ticks down until the gates open on Saturday.
