I'll Have Another Scratched From Belmont Stakes, Says Trainer Doug O'Neill

There will be no quest for history Saturday during the 2012 Belmont Stakes.

Triple Crown hopeful I'll Have Another pulled out of the race reportedly due to an undisclosed issue, as trainer Doug O'Neill told the Dan Patrick Show on Friday.

A press conference has been scheduled for 1 p.m. to divulge more information on I'll Have Another, which might have unknowingly run its final race in the Preakness.

O'Neill said that having to withdraw from the race was "a bummer," but "far from tragic."
