Kentucky Derby 2012: I'll Have Another Looking Like Triple Crown Contender
Even before I'll Have Another edged Bodemeister for the win at the Kentucky Derby, he had already had his fair share of success.
In all three of his races this season, I'll Have Another has emerged as the winner. He won the Robert B. Lewis Stakes in February, won the Santa Anita Derby in April and finished it off with an outstanding run down the stretch at Churchill Downs.
All of a sudden, a horse that faced 30-1 odds in the Kentucky Derby is being seen as one of the front-runners.
But I'll Have Another may not just be a front-runner, he may be the front-runner. He's been incredibly consistent this year and, above all, has been able to separate himself from the rest of the competition at the end.
Bodemeister—a big favorite at the Kentucky Derby—was embarrassed down the stretch against him.
I'll Have Another's jockey, Mario Gutierrez, said after the victory at Churchill Downs, via Reuters, "He is an amazing horse. I told everybody before the first time I rode him, I knew he was the one."
Will I'll Have Another capture the 2012 Preakness Stakes?
You can't argue after what was on display in the Kentucky Derby.
I'll Have Another beat a horse in Bodemeister who had won the Arkansas Derby by nine-and-a-half lengths. I'll Have Another was able to erase Bodemeister's five-length lead in the end.
Bodemeister is still a hot name, but everyone should be talking about I'll Have Another's impressive victory at Churchill Downs. This horse has the potential to win the Triple Crown, starting with the second leg in the 2012 Preakness Stakes.
