retired Kentucky Derby hero, I'll Have Another has been sold to stand at Shigeyuki Okada's Big Red Farm in Japan.
The news comes two weeks after the star colt was withdrawn from the Group I Belmont Stakes due to injury, ending his bid to win the Triple Crown after brilliant wins in the Derby and Preakness.
I'll Have Another(pictured Belmont Racing) will be the third Kentucky Derby winner to make his way to Japan following on from the 2002 winner War Emblem, who encountered fertility issues and the 1989 winner Sunday Silence, who went on to be a champion sire.
I'll Have Another joins a largeroster of 11 other stallions at Big Red Farm including Breeders Cup Turf winner Conduit and Stay Gold, the sire of last season's Japanese Horse of the Year Orfevre.
A son of young Distorted Humor sire Flower Alley, I'll Have Another retires as the winner of five races from seven starts and $2,693,600 in prizemoney.
