With 2012 drawing to a close, America's Best Racing thought the final few weeks of the year provided a perfect opportunity to look back at some of our favorite moments caught on tape from another great season of Thoroughbred racing.
America’s Best Racing produced this special feature program "I'll Have Another - Charging Toward History" for the NBC Sports Network.
The day after "I'll Have Another - Charging Toward History" aired on NBC Sports Network, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner suffered a tendon injury to his left front leg that forced him to miss the Belmont Stakes and ultimately led owner J. Paul Reddam and trainer Doug O'Neill to retire I'll Have Another.
With unprecedented access to I’ll Have Another and Team O’Neill as well as the connections of other major challengers, including Dale Romans (Dullahan) and Michael Matz (Union Rags), America's Best Racing brought viewers deep into the inner world of horse racing, providing an unprecedented look at the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes and the days and events leading up to the Belmont Stakes, which was expected to be I'll Have Another's bid to become the 12th U.S. Triple Crown winner until the tendon injury derailed his run at history.
