Look, I'm no horse guy. The last oater the Blob put large green on was named My Friend Flicka.
But I know a little about history, and history says I'll Have Another has already answered last call with his Preakness win.
There's a lot of people right now trying hard to draw a comparison between I'll Have Another-vs.-Bodemeister and Affirmed-vs.-Alydar, the last great Triple Crown duel, and I suppose that's unavoidable. The results of the first two legs are eerily similar.
But everyone knew Affirmed was a potential super-horse going in. I'll Have Another, by contrast, was a deep longshot who paid off in the Derby, then did it again against (except for Bodemeister) a weak Preakness field. He's no super-horse.
So my prediction for the Belmont?
There'll be no Triple Crown. Someone else gets crowned in New York.
