Are we looking at horse racing history?

That question will be asked many times over many days in the next three weeks.

Will I’ll Have Another join the ranks of Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Citation and Whirlaway?

PREAKNESS:  I’ll Have Another one race from sweep

TRIPLE CROWN:  Dreams often dashed at Belmont

PREAKNESS:  A day in photos

Affirmed won the last Triple Crown in 1978 when Alydar finished second in all three races.

That won’t happen this year no matter what. Trainer Bob Baffert said he won’t send Bodemeister, second in the Derby and Preakness, to the Belmont.

That leaves I’ll Have Another without his chief rival in the June 9 race.

“(Jockey) Mario (Gutierrez) was so patient,” trainer Doug O’Neill said of the Preakness win. “We’re thinking Triple Crown, baby. Come on, why not.”

Why not? You tell us?
