VIDEO: Trainer Doug O'Neill Confirms I'll Have Another Out Of Belmont

I'll Have Another trainer Doug O'Neill called into "The Dan Patrick Show" on Friday to confirm the famous horse would be pulling out of Saturday's 2012 Belmont Stakes due to a leg injury. This ensures there will be no Triple Crown winner in 2012.

CSN Chicago supplied a video of the Dan Patrick Show segment on which O'Neill appeared to announce the decision. O'Neill tried to break up the moment with levity, as you can see in the video below.

The New York Racing association announced on their Twitter feed later on Friday that O'Neill's brother Dennis O'Neill has confirmed the news of I'll Have Another's withdrawal from the race.
