America finds new hero in Union Rags after injury ends a Triple Crown dream

It might have been a John Terry moment, but thankfully was not. Before the Belmont Stakes on Saturday night, the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes winner I'll Have Another, deprived of his chance of a Triple Crown on the eve of the New York race by a leg injury, was taken to the winner's circle anyhow for a ceremonial retirement.

I'll Have Another was aiming to win the first Triple Crown since 1978

JIM BOLGER: The trainer plans to run Parish Hall in the Irish 2,000 Guineas just one week before a tilt at the Derby

Bolger sets Parish Hall Classic challenge en route to Camelot

Though the race falls only a week before Epsom, the Abu Dhabi Irish 2,000 Guineas on Saturday will not only measure the form of Camelot but could also produce an 11th-hour threat to the odds-on favourite for the Investec Derby.

I'll Have Another fires rich dreams of US Triple Crown

Whatever the fate of the 2,000 Guineas winner Camelot at Epsom in 12 days' time, and whatever his destiny afterwards, at least one Triple Crown dream is still alive. The Kentucky Derby hero I'll Have Another followed up in the second leg of the US version, the Preakness Stakes, on Saturday night and is now bound for the third, next month's Belmont Stakes.

Godolphin aim for Classics on two continents

Though the stable has failed to muster a starter in the Qipco 2,000 Guineas at Newmarket on Saturday, the changing complexion of Godolphin still leaves much to anticipate. For one thing, Mahmood al-Zarooni has two strong chances in the fillies' Classic the following day, in Discourse and Lyric Of Light, a year after sealing his promotion to supervise a yard in his own right through Blue Bunting – who was relieving a Godolphin drought, in both the early Classics, going back to 2002.

Monterosso can keep cup at home

Though the whole purpose of this meeting is to bring together disparate racing cultures, punters can hardly know beforehand how the varied form lines will measure up. In pure value terms, however, it seems a little presumptuous to be making So You Think a warm favourite for the Dubai World Cup, not least when the reputation that preceded him from Australia last year ultimately seemed to be placed in due perspective.

28 killed as storms ravage US

Harvard N Yale is just edged out by Cavaleiro in a two-year-old contest at Newbury in September

Harvard N Yale out for a Kentucky first

It may sound sacrilegious, as Kauto Star seeks another piece of Turf history at Kempton on Boxing Day, but something equally momentous might conceivably get under way 15 minutes earlier – in a £3,500 race at Wolverhampton. Few will be paying the slightest attention to Harvard N Yale, not least with the holiday programme over jumps apparently secured by a mild weather forecast. Unlikely as it seems, however, this young colt will be taking the first tentative steps towards a summit never yet scaled from this side of the Atlantic.
