I'll Have Another nosed out heavy favorite Creative Cause at the end of a thrilling stretch duel to win the 2012 Grade 1 Santa Anita Derby. by virtue of his victory, I'll Have Another has earned a spot in the starting gate for the 2012 Kentucky Derby. Longshot Blueskiesnrainbows, the early pacesetter, ran a huge race to finish third. Recent maiden winner Paynter completed the superfecta.
Creative Cause already had a place in the Derby in hand due to his graded stakes earnings.
I'll Have Another is a three-year-old son of Flower Alley out of an Arch mare (Arch's Gal), owned by Reddam Racing, trained by Doug O'Neil, and ridden by Mario Gutierrez.
I'll have more on the Santa Anita Derby a little later.
