Marion county horse out of Triple Crown chase

By

The thoroughbred racehorse I’ll Have Another has dropped out of the Belmont Stakes this weekend. His trainer said earlier today he has the start of some tendonitis in the left front leg. The Ocala Breeders’ Sales Company sold I’ll Have Another earlier in 2011.  WUFT-FM’s Emily Burris spoke with company spokesman Jay Friedman about what this means for the horse and those who were supporting him in Marion County.
