Will I'll Have Another win the Triple Crown?
What those who have won the Triple Crown are saying about I'll Have Another:
"He looks like he would be a good successor if it comes about. There were times I didn't feel we were ready to relinquish it (being the last Triple Crown winner). But maybe the time has come now, and I certainly think racing needs a horse that will bring a lot of excitement. And this little guy can do that.
"There is something about this chestnut that reminds me a bit of Affirmed just the way he wants to win. Maybe it's just time. Racing could use a star and he could possibly be a star."
Never miss a local story.
— Patrice Wolfson,co-owner of 1978 Triple Crown winner Affirmed
"I tell you what I love about him is he really has a lot of try in him. The way he dug in in the stretch of the Derby and particularly the Preakness, he likes to run, he likes to battle. He's not afraid of a battle and that's the best thing he has going for him."
— Steve Cauthen,jockey of Affirmed
"I've been surprised since the Preakness was run, on airplanes or in supermarkets or wherever I am, I hear people talking about I'll Have Another and saying, 'Do you think that horse can do it?' It won't solve all our problems by any means but it would be a great help to bring that interest back if we had a Triple Crown winner because people are paying attention. I do think we can take a step forward if we have a Triple Crown winner this year."
— Sally Hill,co-owner of 1977 Triple Crown winner Seattle Slew
"We just have a different set of goals with the horses we breed now and it will take a remarkable individual to complete this (the Triple Crown). I happen to think I'll Have Another can do it."
— Penny Chenery,owner of 1973 Triple Crownwinner Secretariat
