I'll Have Another Retired From Horse Racing Following Injury

The stunning news this Friday that I'll Have Another would not complete his Triple Crown run at the 2012 Belmont Stakes was not the only shock of the day to the world of thoroughbred racing: I'll Have Another's racing career is over, as he will be retired due to an injury sustained in a Friday practice.

I'll Have Another took the 2012 Kentucky Derby and stormed down the stretch to overtake Bodemeister and win the 2012 Preakness Stakes, setting up the first chance a horse would have had since Big Brown in 2008 to win the Triple Crown at the Belmont. But a tendon injury reportedly suffered in a morning practice led to the horse being scratched from the race, meaning that I'll Have Another will not join the ranks of Triple Crown winners.

In retirement, I'll Have Another could bring millions of dollars in stud fees.
