Trainer Doug O’Neill called the New York Times’ report that dual classic winner I’ll Have Another was ailing before his retirement “irresponsible journalism.” The Times reported on Wednesday that I’ll Have Another’s veterinary records showed he was being treated with painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs between winning the Preakness Stakes on May 19 and being scratched from the Belmont with an injury to his left front tendon and ultimately retired on June 8, the eve of the Belmont Stakes.
