PHYSICAL THERAPIST LENDS HELPFUL HAND TO I’LL HAVE ANOTHER


BALTIMORE, 05-12-12 – Tyler Cerin is a valued member of the I’ll Have Another team whom trainer Doug O’Neill would rather not have to use at Pimlico Race Course during preparations for the 137th Preakness Stakes.

Preakness News-May 10 Notes


BALTIMORE, 05-10-12 – Trainer Doug O’Neill took a red-eye flight from California to watch I’ll Have Another on the track at Pimlico Race Course Thursday morning and, in a matter of minutes, his Preakness-bound colt made the overnight trip worthwhile.

I’ll Have Another was led to the track by Lava Man – a $5 million earner during his career, who is a stable pony in retirement – and galloped smartly once around the track under exercise rider Jonny Garcia. It was the first time the Flower Alley colt was allowed to gallop since he won the Kentucky Derby early Saturday evening at Churchill Downs. O’Neill went home to California on Sunday and his staff traveled with the colt to Pimlico on Monday.
