With the shocking victory of I'll Have Another in the 2012 Kentucky Derby, my duty as a contributor for the site means I must examine him further.
So, I'll Have Another is a solid, but not amazing pedigree. He is far and away the highest quality runner in his family, even without his win in the Derby. He is bred to run over a mile when you combine his sire's and dam's average winning distances then factor in their dosage computations. He should have plenty of speed based on his siblings' success at 7f, and it appears he's got tactical speed to stalk and close. Based on his performace on the track on Derby day, I think it's safe to say that he can go 10f, and keep up with torrid fractions. There is no doubt he's an immensely talented colt, but certainly not bred impeccably. I fully expect him to be a very high quality horse from here on out. He should have favorable breeding crosses with Medaglia D'oro, Deputy Minister, and AP Indy lineages.
