In what is likely to be his final public appearance before leaving for stud duty in Japan, I'll Have Another will parade between races Saturday at Hollywood Park.

Retired Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner I’ll Have Another will be paraded between races on Saturday at Betfair Hollywood Park.

I’ll Have Another is scheduled to be sent to Japan later this summer for stud duty. Saturday’s ceremony is likely to be his final public appearance before he starts quarantine in advance of being sent to Japan.

Owned by Paul and Zillah Reddam and trained by Doug O’Neill, I’ll Have Another made his final start in the Preakness Stakes. He was scratched  from the Belmont Stakes on June 8, the day before the race, because of a tendon injury. I’ll Have Another won 5 of 7 starts and $2,693,600.

O’Neill and jockey Mario Gutierrez will conduct an autograph session near the paddock on Saturday between noon and 1 p.m.

Owner Harris to receive Pincay Award

California owner-breeder John Harris has been named the 2012 recipient of the Laffit Pincay Jr. Award, Hollywood Park announced last weekend.

A presentation will be made between races on Saturday.

The Pincay award, named for the famous retired jockey, is presented annually to an individual recognized for his dedication and integrity in racing.

Harris, who turns 69 on July 14, operates Harris Ranch in Coalinga, Calif., which breeds Thoroughbreds and operates a stable. In recent years, Harris has been represented by several stakes winners, including the turf sprinter Unzip Me as well as Compari, Lucky J.H, and Work the Crowd.

A former president of the California Thoroughbred Breeders Association and a former chairman of the California Horse Racing Board, Harris is a member of the Jockey Club.

◗ Sutherland will make a public appearance with television host Kurt Hoover in a 30-minute discussion of the Hollywood Gold Cup on the stage below the paddock tote board at noon on Saturday.
