“Congratulations to I’ll Have Another, J. Paul Reddam, and everyone on Team O’Neill!” said C. Steven Duncker, Chairman of NYRA’s Board of Directors. “We are thrilled to welcome the Derby and Preakness hero to New York for the Belmont Stakes on June 9. I’ll Have Another will attempt to make history as the first Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978, and is the first Triple Crown hopeful to try the Belmont Stakes since Big Brown in 2008. We anticipate a spectacular day of racing three weeks from now, and look forward to welcoming fans to beautiful Belmont Park .”
