Hot walker Benjamin Perez walks Triple Crown hopefull I'll Have Another in the detention barn following a morning workout in preparation for the 144th Belmont Stakes at Belmont Park on June 7, 2012 in Elmont, New York.

I'll Have Another was scratched from the Belmont Stakes today, with trainer Doug O'Neill citing a "little problem" in the horse's left hind leg. O'Neill went on to insinuate that the horse has run its last race. What implications does this have for the Belmont Stakes? How can a "little problem" be so devastating for a horse's career? Will you still be watching this weekend?
