“I’ll Have Another” won’t have another after all.

This year’s Triple Crown contender, by the name of “I’ll Have Another”, won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness with true grit, digging deep and pulling hard in both races to come from behind and edge past the leader right at the finish line.

What a wonderful example of the sheer determination and dedication conferred when Mars and Saturn join forces in a birth chart! (see below for the horse’s natal chart)

But this week’s Lunar Eclipse and Transit of Venus, both of which were in heavy conflict with Mars, put undue strain on the main source of stress in I’ll Have Another’s birth chart: the colt’s natal Mars-Saturn Opposition has been challenged all week by 4th-Harmonic direct hits from Mars and the Eclipses, and it all just proved to be too much agitation.

The horse was scratched from the Belmont Stakes on the eve of the race—and will be retired from racing—due to tendonitis.

It’s a shame there weren’t any helpful Trines or Sextiles in the horse’s chart to ease the strain of his Mars-Saturn Opposition. If there were, this great athlete could have been preparing this evening to take his place in history, instead of suffering the pain of a career-ending injury.

Here’s the chart, but take note: birth time is unknown, so ignore the house cusps, and remember that the moon could be 12 degrees earlier or later than 29 gemini.
