Reddam Racing's I'll Have Another, bidding to become the 12th winner of the Triple Crown June 9 in the Belmont Stakes, will break from post 11. Made the 4-5 morning-line favorite, I'll Have Another will again be ridden by Mario Gutierrez. I'll Have Another will face 11 rivals in the 12-furlong Belmont and again has drawn to the outside of most of his fellow 3-year-olds. The son of Flower Alley was the first horse in the history of the Kentucky Derby to win after breaking from post 19 at Churchill Downs. In the Preakness Stakes, I'll Have Another came from post 9 in an 11-horse line-up at Pimlico Race Course. He narrrowly defeated Bodemeister in both races. "It's been an unbelievable ride," O'Neill said immediately after the post position draw. He expressed satisfaction with I'll Have Another's post for the Belmont.
