Racing News: I'll Have Another is a Triple Crown Contender!
With I'll Have Another's win at the Kentucky Derby on May 5 and his additional win on Saturday in The Preakness, we now have a Triple Crown Contender!
How elusive is the Triple Crown? Since 1919, only 11 horses have completed this feat, with the last being Affirmed, thirty-four years ago in 1978. Does I'll Have Another have what it takes to win the Test of Champions?
Head to Evangeline Downs for a chance to witness history to watch and wager LIVE on the 144th Running of the Belmont Stakes on Saturday, June 9. What will you say when people ask you where you were when I'll Have Another won the Triple Crown? Make your answer Evangeline Downs.
