Trainer gives his Derby-winning colt a day off

BALTIMORE (AP) - The trainer for I'll Have Another is keeping
his Kentucky Derby winner off the track at Pimlico Race Course on a
wet Tuesday morning in Baltimore.
Trainer Doug O'Neill figured his chestnut colt deserved a day
off, especially because the horse is running well and feeling sharp
following his May 5 victory.
On Saturday, I'll Have Another will attempt to win the Preakness
and keep alive his bid to become the first horse since Affirmed in
1978 to win the Triple Crown.
O'Neill has been enjoying the sites of Baltimore since his
arrival last Wednesday. He's watched the Baltimore Ravens practice
and tried crabs for the first time. He's to throw out the first
pitch at Tuesday night's game between the Orioles and New York
