I'll Have Another Scratched from Belmont
NEW YORK (AP) -- I'll Have Another's bid for a Triple Crown ended with the shocking news that the colt was out of the Belmont Stakes due to a swollen left front tendon.

According to Dennis O'Neill, brother of trainer Doug O'Neill, the horse galloped Friday morning and after a veterinary scan, the tendon seemed ''kind of tender.''

O'Neill told The Associated Press that, ''the horse is sound and happy, but it's not worth it.''
