He's now 4 of 6 with one 2nd, and how many times has he been the favorite? Never.
I'll Have Another gets in a jog at Old Hilltop
Members of trainer Doug O'Neill's staff liked what the saw Wednesday morning when Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another made his first trip to the track at Pimlico, the site of his next start, the 137th running of the Preakness Stakes on May 19.

Was happy to read that IHA was born on April Fools Day. We recently lost Dynaformer ... but we gained I'll Have Another. I love foals born on that day! There's Zenyatta .... Win Willy
>The colt who would bear that name was a 2-year-old that Dennis picked out at the Ocala Breeders Sales Company April sale for $35,000. He felt if he can pay $35,000 and the horse can win for $45,000 or $50,000 he’s done a good job. Bred in Kentucky by Harvey Clarke, the chestnut colt, born on April Fools Day, actually had been consigned as a yearling at the Keeneland September sale as Hip no. 3660.<

Horse sense is the thing a horse has that keeps him from betting on people. ~~W. C. Fields
Some nice shots here.
The head area between his eyes, has a bump. Definitely not one of the prettiest heads. See #14.

The bandage I'm pretty sure is actually a Flair strip, which is put over the nasal passage to open up the airways. It's a method used to reduce bleeding in the lungs that has some pretty good success (I think figures I saw were around 40% reduction without drugs, and 65% further reduction when paired with Lasix). Barrel racers and eventers wear them as well.
And listening to some big out a' town jasper, hearing him tell about horse-race gamblin'.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on a horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch?
Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!
He always has those frizzy curls on race day. I'm not sure about his workouts but I remember seeing photos from his one SA work, and he had the braids, and he was all natural in the mornings at CD at least from what I saw. And it appears his mane was left alone in the above photo at Pimlico too.
I don't like the curls. The braids are ok, but not my favorite for a race horse.
gotta love this horse - and one more thing to like about him... he won't back down from a fight in the stretch - i still love the way he would not let went the day well get past him after the derby - he has a lot of grit to him - same thing in the santa anita derby - creative cause was never going to get by him... he will be such fun to watch in the preakness.
Judging by morning gallops, I'll Have Another is doing great

Live life, don't just exist it!
I always loved to take the show braids out of my horses' manes and see the curly locks that remained there. I think the permed look is striking on horses.
