Santa Anita: Public workout for Santa Anita Derby prospect I’ll Have Another


I’ll Have Another, the upset winner of the Grade 2 Robert Lewis Stakes on Feb. 4, will work six furlongs after the seventh race on Saturday, trainer Doug O’Neill said.

Owned by Paul Reddam, I’ll Have Another is being pointed for the Santa Anita Derby.

“It’s a little experience in front of a good-sized crowd,” O’Neill said of the workout. “He came out of the Bob Lewis in great shape. His stride is as long as ever and he’s full of energy. He seems like he’s up to taking on the big-time horses.”

For Saturday’s workout, I’ll Have Another will have an expert pony taking him to the gate – Lava Man, the winner of the Big Cap in 2006 and 2007. Lava Man, 11, is a pony for trainer Doug O’Neill.

O’Neill has two starters in the Big Cap – the longshots Boxeur des Rues and Thirtyfirststreet.

“It’s wide open,” O’Neill said of the race. “Who knows where they fit?”
