I’ll Have Another, winner of the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes last month, is bound for stud duty in Japan.
Owner Paul Reddam said Friday that a deal has been reached with
Shigeyuki Okada’s Big Red Farm on the island of Hokkaido to stand I’ll
Have Another beginning with the 2013 breeding season. Financial terms
were confidential, Reddam said.
I’ll Have Another is currently based at trainer Doug O’Neill’s stable at Betfair Hollywood Park.
I’ll Have Another was retired June 8 because of a tendon injury. He
was scheduled to start the following day as a heavy favorite in the
Belmont Stakes in an attempt to sweep the Triple Crown. He ended his
career with 5 wins in 7 starts and earnings of $2,693,600.
