Here at Belmont Park, where after the fourth race the media was allowed to talk to Mario Gutierrez in the winner’s circle. Of course, the jockey was hoping to talk to the media after his horse, I’ll Have Another, won today’s Belmont Stakes to become the 12th colt to win the Triple Crown.
Instead, I’ll Have Another became the 12th horse in the past 34 years to win the Kentucky Derby and Preakness but not emerge victorious in the Belmont. The reason this was time was different. The son of Flower Alley developed tendinitis in his left front leg and was scratched on Friday.
