Hollywood Park: I'll Have Another will parade between races
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.
I have read some of the most appalling, distasteful and disgustingly awful statements regarding I'll Have Another since he has been retired. All he did was win, and win impressively, thrillingly and beautifully, and this kind of disrespect that has been thrown at him is truly and horribly sad. You prove yourself a great champion and a fabulous overachiever and all you get is reviled by a lot of people who didn't have the good fortune to bet you when they had the chance. Not a great ringing endorsement of some bettors out there, because a great champion horse deserves your respect, whether you won money on him/her or not. I will be there Saturday, and I will be cheering loudly when I'll Have Another is paraded by the stands because this fabulous champion horse needs and deserves to hear North Americans cheer him one last time in reward for all of the wonderful racing IHA has provided all of us, and the thrilling, wonderful fashion in which I'll Have Another won those races. The races IHA won are among the most coveted, important and biggest races presented, not only in the United States, but in the entire world. IHA thrilled us all, and he should be assured that we appreciated his talent, his efforts, his heart, his professionalism and his amazing will-to-win. So yes, I will be cheering and clapping and thanking I'll Have Another. He deserves my cheers and praise, and I will be giving them to him, no matter who is standing next to him. I am disappointed in Paul Reddam and I have issue with him, but I will not boo him, I will cheer the horse instead. I'll Have Another deserves the cheers, and I hope those attending will remember to cheer the horse, and not confuse IHA by booing the owner. I wouldn't want IHA to think the boos are for him, because they wouldn't be. Our cheers and thanks are the only things that should be ringing through IHA's ears. I'll Have Another deserves to be sent off with honor and respect, and I, for one, will give that to him Saturday. We should all say good-bye to this noble warrior with both style and grace.
going with richard;s kid in gold cup...
can i go with the horse
Who knows if the Japs r really gonna really breed IHA they eat everything overthere. They might let him knock up a few mares then slaughter him for dinner. It should be out lawed for guys like this to just abandon these Horses when they find them not useful anymore.
I hope Redham never sees a horse of this caliber again. I'll Have Another could have run the Belmont. Jeez, just watch the retirement announcement again. Redham doesnt look the slightest upset because he knew the deal was on. He took the money over the Crown! Fiend! He had better hope that he doesnt walk past me on Breeders Cup Saturday. I can say that with conviction.
I feel so bad for this horse. What a double-edged sword being a champion horse is. You do not perform and you kicked around ending up who knows where. You win some of the biggest races on Earth and you still get passed along like you dont matter just so the greedy fiend of an owner PAUL REDHAM can get his money. I wish the New York Times would shred this guy. (And I hate the NYT's opinions on horse racing).
You think the horse really would rather leave the rolling hills of the majestic Kentucky bluegrass for Japan? I wouldnt give these sellout loan sharking prey off the poor people connections the time of day. These guys ducked racing to sellout -- and dont tell me its all about business -- this is the sport of kings -- these people racing these beautiful animals should already be rich!
Hope they boo when owner's name is announced
