Dual classic winner I'll Have Another is adjusting well to his new home at Big Red Farm in Japan, according to Terence Collier.
The dams of two of this year's Triple Crown stars, I'll Have Another and Bodemeister, will be offered at the Fasig-Tipton Kentucky November select mixed sale.
I'll Have Another heads to Belmont Park in three weeks with a chance to become Thoroughbred racing's 12th Triple Crown winner after nipping a determined Bodemeister in a terrific renewal of the Preakness Stakes May 19.
J. Paul Reddam's I'll Have Another ran past a freewheeling Bodemeister in deep stretch to win the May 5 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I). Dullahan rallied for third.
Lightly raced I'll Have Another, running for the first time in two months, dug in through the stretch to stave off odds-on favorite Creative Cause by a nose in a tremendous finish to the $750,000 Santa Anita Derby (gr. I).
A look at his form makes it slightly surprising that I'll Have Another was underestimated in the Robert B. Lewis, and a glance at his pedigree marks him as a colt who could be expected to improve with time and distance.
Trainer Doug O'Neill has picked a tough spot for his promising colt I'll Have Another, who returns from a five-month absence in the $200,000 Robert B. Lewis Stakes (gr. II) Feb. 4 at Santa Anita.
