NEW YORK, N.Y. - Canadian-owned Triple Crown contender I'll Have Another is recovering well from Saturday's Preakness victory.

The colt arrived at Belmont Park on Sunday to prepare for the June 9 Belmont Stakes, where I'll Have Another will attempt to become the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.

An assistant to trainer Doug O'Neill says "he looks great, fantastic." Jack Sisterson said Tuesday that I'll Have Another is "a very happy horse."

Sisterson says the colt will return to the track sometime later this week. O'Neill is scheduled to arrive early next week to supervise the remaining training.

Sisterson says: "He bounced back right out of the race in great shape. ... He's doing everything we wanted to see and more."

I'll Have Another is owned by J. Paul Reddam of Windsor, Ont.
