Reddam Racing reached the top of the racing mountain this spring with
victories in the Santa Anita Derby (G1), Kentucky Derby (G1) and
Preakness (G1) by I’ll Have Another.
The quest to find the next I’ll Have Another enters a new phase at Keeneland Saturday when the stable’s He’s Had Enough goes postward in the 99th running of the $400,000 Dixiana Breeders’ Futurity (G1).
A winner in his first start in August at Del Mar and then sixth as
the favorite in the Oak Tree Juvenile Turf at Del Mar on September 5,
He’s Had Enough arrived at Keeneland from his Southern California base
on Tuesday . The Tapit colt galloped on the main track Wednesday morning
under exercise rider Humberto Gomez.
“We didn’t want to run two of our horses in the same race,” trainer
Doug O’Neill said Wednesday morning from Hollywood Park of the decision
to ship He’s Had Enough to Keeneland. “We had Know More
for the FrontRunner (G1) (in which he finished second) and this horse
ran well on the Polytrack at Del Mar and that factored in the decision.”
O’Neill said that Mario Gutierrez, the rider this spring for I’ll Have Another, would have the riding assignment Saturday.
“He’s Had Enough has got talent and I think he has a good chance,
although looking at the race there are a lot of good horses in there,”
said O’Neill, who won the race in 2006 with Great Hunter for Reddam and took over the training of Square Eddie for Reddam after the colt’s win in the race in 2008.
