VIDEO: Triple Crown 2012, I'll Have Another Retires From Belmont Stakes

With the announcement of Belmont Stakes favorite, and Triple Crown contender I'll Have Another being scratched from Saturday's race due to a tendon injury, plenty of questions have surfaced. How severe of an injury is it? Who is now the favorite to win Saturday's race?

Well, have no fear horse racing fans, as SB Nation's horse racing expert Matt Gardner of And Down the Stretch They Come has the answers to those questions and many more in this video report.

Although I'll Have Another's chances of the Triple Crown are now ruined, his fellow competitors Union Rags, Dullahan and Paynter decided to take him out for a day of fun to cheer him up.
