Press Conference following the Scratch of I'll Have Another from Saturday's Belmont Stakes [12:48]
Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner I'll Have Another was withdrawn from Saturday's 144th running of the Grade 1, $1 million Belmont Stakes and retired, a little more than 24 hours before his attempt to become the first horse in 34 years to win the Triple Crown. In a ceremonial tribute, jockey Mario Gutierrez will be aboard I'll Have Another as he leads the post parade for the Belmont Stakes (post time 6:40 pm, NBC 4:30-7 pm). Trainer Doug O'Neill said I'll Have Another had developed a swelling in his left front tendon that was the beginning of tendonitis. "This is extremely tough for all of us. It's far from tragic but it's extremely disappointing," said O'Neill, who described the injury as a "freakish thing" during a 1 pm news conference at Belmont Park. "He has been a little quiet the last few days of galloping but his legs have been great. Yesterday he galloped great, but in the afternoon we noticed some loss of definition in his left front leg ... we prayed he kind of hit himself and that it was a little bit of skin irritation. We did him up in a special poultice, and this morning he looked great. We did just a little easy gallop with him this morning. I thought he looked great on the track. "Cooling out, you could tell the swelling was back," he said. "I talked with Mr. [J. Paul] Reddam and immediately we got Dr. [Jim] Hunt over here. He scanned him and he said it was the start of tendonitis in his [superficial] left front tendon and ... you give him three to six ...

I'll Have Another out of the Belmont Stakes [01:46]
An undisclosed injury has taken I'll Have Another out of the Belmont Stakes and out of the running for the Triple Crown. A press conference is scheduled for 1 pm ET. There were indications this morning that something was amiss. Trainer Doug O'Neill took I'll Have Another to the track for his morning jog hours earlier than he had been going for the past three weeks. O'Neill then left the Belmont track without speaking to the media, and owner Paul Reddam was also not available. That was highly unusual for what had been a media-friendly group. "I was watching him this morning," said trainer Ken McPeek, who has two horses in Saturday's race -- Unstoppable U and Atigun. "I wanted to see what his energy level was like, his aura, and the screen [on his stall] was closed. I thought, 'What's that about?' There was people in there. It was a little unusual." Rumors began to circulate late morning that something was wrong with the horse, and O'Neill confirmed the shocking news on The Dan Patrick Show. "It's too bad," said McPeek. "It's a hard thing. I feel really bad for the connections. I feel terrible for them. Saturday's Belmont Stakes were highly anticipated, as I'll Have Another was on the cusp of becoming the first horse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the Triple Crown. Never a favorite in any of his races, the three-year-old I'll Have Another was a 4/5 favorite to win the final leg of the horse racing's most elusive prize. "Now," McPeek said, "it's wide open."

Union Rags nips Paynter to win Belmont Stakes [01:06]
Union Rags picked up right where I'll Have Another left off, coming from behind to catch a Bob Baffert-trained horse at the finish in a Triple Crown race. In Saturday's Belmont Stakes, it was another photo finish decided by a neck. Just like the Preakness. The 3-year-old bay colt barreled through a slim opening on the rail to edge Paynter, dealing Baffert, jockey Mike Smith and owner Ahmed Zayat a third loss in this year's Triple Crown series. "We needed every bit of the mile and a half," winning trainer Michael Matz said. I'll Have Another won the Kentucky Derby and Preakness with stirring stretch drives over Baffert's Bodemeister. But the champion stunned the racing world Friday when he was scratched from the Belmont and retired due to a tendon injury, relinquishing a shot at the first Triple Crown sweep since 1978 and only the 12th ever. His absence opened up the race for Union Rags, who finished a troubled seventh in the Derby after a bumpy start. Union Rags skipped the Preakness and because of the Derby problems switched jockeys for the Belmont _ from Julien Leparoux to John Velazquez, who picked up his second Belmont victory; he won in 2007 with filly Rags to Riches. "I have to give it to the horse. He did it all for me. He just worked so unbelievable and I was just hoping he could put that work into today's race and he did," said Velazquez, who will enter racing's Hall of Fame in August. "I was very proud of him.'"

Five Sixteen works at Belmont Park, June 1 [03:16]
Five Sixteen turned in his final pre-Belmont Stakes breeze, turning in a 1:00.98 five-furlong move in company with stablemate Live for Today on Thursday. "It was good," said Dominick Schettino, who trains Five Sixteen for MeB Racing Stables. "He did everything we asked." Schettino added that Five Sixteen will have schooling sessions in the starting gate and paddock prior to the Belmont Stakes. The colt is 1-1-1 in six starts and enters the race off a fourth in an April 18 optional claimer at Aqueduct Racetrack.
