Preakness 2012: No Long Workouts For 'I'll Have Another'

Doug O'Neill the trainer for Kentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another has commented that he will not schedule any long workouts for the horse ahead of the May 19 race. The horse had a series of long workouts prior to the Santa Anita Derby and didn't have a long work over the Churchill Downs surface prior to the Derby.

I love the way he went (at Pimlico) this morning and he'll just continue to gallop that way up to the race. He hasn't missed an oat in months, he's full of energy, and he's sound. He looked fantastic on the track today, and so far so good.

O'Neill also commented that the Derby winner is staying one barn away from where the horses competing in the undercard stakes are being held, rather than staying in the stakes barn in the traditional Derby winner's stall.
