Doug O'Neill and Reddam Racing have touted this son of Tapit as the heir to I'll Have Another's Triple Crown success. There have been flashes of brilliance, but in between those flashes are gaps filled with under-performance and disappointment.
Granted the young gray colt has started three Grade I races in just five career starts, so he may have an excuse for a blemished race record.
After breaking his maiden on the first try at Del Mar last year, O'Neill took his colt to the turf in an ungraded stakes where he finished sixth. In a surprise move a month later, He's Had Enough started the Grade I Dixiana Breeders Futurity, finishing a dismal 11th.
Just when everyone thought the horse was done for he gives Shanghai Bobby a run for every cent of his money in, the Grade I BC Juvenile and scores a Grade I second-place finish on his record. After his triumph, the colt went on to disappoint yet again, finishing fifth in the Grade I CashCall Futurity.
I get the the feeling that this kid hasn't "had enough." Let's remember that last year at this point, I'll Have Another had only one win (maiden), a second-place finish in a Grade II stakes and a sixth-place finish in a Grade I. O'Neill might know what he's doing with this one, so he's got to be on the radar.
