It's a real shame that this happened to a great Triple Crown hopeful. I'll have another has a poor history of leg issues, and when you look at his past this does not come up as a surprise. I had an unraced TB that aquired a tendonitis just like I'll Have Another's, same leg, same spot. It was a simple case of weakness. He still was a great jumper and was never lame from it, but it required a lot of attention and care. The Jockey Club really has to take a serious look at the breed to strenghthen the bone in modern day TBs. When I look at the Horses I had twenty years ago, their bone was so much more substantial than the horses being bred now. Oh well, I guess I'll go for Union Rags in the race tomorrow.
