For 3-year-old runners unsuccessful on the Triple Crown trail, the $200,000 Dwyer Stakes (gr. II) at Belmont Park offers an opportunity to get back on track for the summer season.
Trainer Doug O'Neill has full confidence in the potential for I'll Have Another to handle the grueling 1 1/2 miles of the Belmont Stakes (gr. I) after the colt captured the first two jewels of America's Triple Crown.
Though I'll Have Another ran him down in deep stretch in the Kentucky Derby at Churchill, all signs point to Bodemeister being the one to beat in Preakness 137 at Pimlico Race Course May 19.

Stall 40 at Pimlico, usually reserved for the Kentucky Derby winner, is instead occupied by New York-bred Zetterholm, who comes into the Preakness with as little fanfare as any starter in the 11-horse field.

Both colts got their final tune-ups May 13 for the grade I Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course.
Before Derby winner I'll Have Another went to the track Sunday to prepare for the Preakness, trainer Doug O'Neill had a nice chat with Ron Turcotte, who rode Secretariat to a Triple Crown sweep.
Expected Preakness Stakes (gr. I) starter Teeth of the Dog breezed five furlongs in 1:01 under at Fair Hill Training Center May 12.
