I'll Have Another works out at Pimlico
Reddam Racing's I'll Have Another, the winner of Saturday's Kentucky Derby, was settled into his new home in Barn D at Pimlico Race Course on Tuesday morning. The horse was limited to very light exercise, standard procedure in the days after a race, in preparation for the Preakness on May 19. "He walked this morning for about 15 or 20 minutes," assistant trainer Jack Sisterson said. "He was just taking it all in and looking around. He's feeling good." Sisterson said the colt has come out of the Derby in great shape. "He looks like he never ran," he said. "He's eaten everything up. He wants to get out of the barn. He's quiet once he's in there, but once he's out, it's like, 'OK, I want to go out to the track now.' That's something we want to see. After a race, especially one like the Kentucky Derby, you're always wondering if it has taken something out of him, but he's doing fantastic." Heinz Steinmann's gray colt Creative Cause is a likely Preakness starter, trainer Mike Harrington said. The three-time graded-stakes winner was shipped back to Harrington's stable in California after he finished fifth in the Kentucky Derby. Harrington said the colt is scheduled to make the trip to Baltimore next week. "We're planning on it; we've got the flight booked," Harrington said. "We have to see how he bounces back."
