Derby and Preakness Winner Scratched from Belmont

I'll Have Another's bid for a Triple Crown ended with the shocking news that the colt is out of tomorrow’s 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."
