I'll Have Another

Reddam-Derby.jpgKentucky Derby winner I'll Have Another stormed down the stretch to capture the Preakness Stakes and secure the first two jewels of the Triple Crown.  The prized thoroughbred showed the fighting spirit of a Trojan, which makes sense given its owner J. Paul Reddam is a USC alum.

Reddam, a philosophy professor turned businessman, earned his Ph.D. at USC.  The Canadian makes his home in Orange County.

He has been in the horse racing game for nearly three decades, including two wins in the Breeders' Cup, but I'll Have Another and rookie jockey Mario Gutierrez, who Reddam is credited with discovering, have launched his resume into a new stratosphere.

The Trojan Family is used to cheering a horse around the track, but unless Traveler enters the Belmont Stakes, I'll Have Another is worth a shout in New York.  No horse has won the Triple Crown since 1978.
