I'll Have Another will have a ceremonial retirement in the Belmont Park winner's circle on Saturday having been denied the chance to make history.
The J. Paul Reddam-owned colt suffered a tendon injury on the eve of his bid to become the 12th Triple Crown winner in America.
Instead of running in the Belmont Stakes, I'll Have Another's grooms will lead him to the paddock shortly after the conclusion of the Woodford Reserve Manhattan and then walk him to the winner's circle where trainer Doug O'Neill will remove his saddle..
"We felt that this would be a fitting ceremonial retirement for an incredible racehorse," said O'Neill.
"There are many fans who travelled from near and far to see I'll Have Another today, and we wanted to give them a chance to help us send him off to retirement."
The chestnut son of Flower Alley retired with $2,693,600 in earnings, winning all four of his starts as a three-year-old - the Robert B. Lewis (G2), the Santa Anita Derby (G1), Kentucky Derby (G1), and the Preakness (G1).
