There won't be a Triple Crown winner this year as I'll Have Another's trainer Doug O'Neill revealed on today's "Dan Patrick Show" that the horse is officially out of Saturday's Belmont Stakes.
O'Neill says I'll Have Another has some swelling and the start of tendonitis in his left front leg.
"He's not 100 and we ain't taking any chances," said O'Neill. "Pulling him out is not tragic, but it's a huge disappointment."
The trainer also said it's possible that the horse will never race again.
Check out the complete announcement below:

Dexter Fowler won't be making a surprise return to the Cubs next season.
Fowler is closing in on a deal to sign with the St. Louis Cardinals, according to USA Today's Bob Nightengale.
The Cubs signed outfielder Jon Jay last week to a one-year deal, pretty much sealing Fowler's future with the Cubs.
In two seasons in Chicago, Fowler batted .261/.367/.427 with 30 home runs and 94 RBI, and a World Series ring.
