I'll Have Another.. The Stretch Run Of A Lifetime...

I’ve seen the replay of the Preakness Stakes five times.. and it still gives me the chills.   In a stunning come-from-behind charge,  I’ll Have Another runs down odds-on-favorite Bodemeister, just as he did to win the Kentucky Derby.  Next up, the third race in the Triple Crown, the Belmont Stakes.  There’s a reason… well, there are many reasons why winning the Triple Crown is almost impossible.  Everything has to go perfectly to win the Derby… and also win the Preakness.  Then you’re asking the stars to line up and 50 other factors have to go your way to win the Belmont.  Oh, and the Belmont race is more than a quarter mile LONGER than the Preakness.  There is that.  That’s why no horse has done it in 34 years.  But make no mistake, all eyes will be on I’ll Have Another at Belmont Park June 9.  How can you root against him?
