I'll Have Another sold for $10 million

  • Updated: July 10, 2012 - 12:22 AM

The owner of I'll Have Another says he sold his Kentucky Derby and Preakness winner to a farm in Japan for $10 million, a price that far exceeded any amount he was offered in the United States.

J. Paul Reddam made his comments in a blog appearing on the bloodhorse.com website. He writes there were two offers from U.S. breeding operations, one valued at just under $5 million, the other at $3 million.

"Certainly greed has something to do with it," he wrote, adding that the "one offer was four times higher in cash than the best offer here," and "I couldn't rationalize not selling him overseas."

Wiggins wins time trial

Bradley Wiggins captured Stage 9, a 41.5-kilometer, or 25.8-mile, individual time trial and put his chief rivals, including the defending champion, Cadel Evans, in serious difficulty as the Tour de France entered its first rest day.

Wearing the yellow jersey worn by the race leader, Wiggins logged the fastest time -- 51 minutes 24 seconds -- on an undulating course that began in Arc-et-Senans and finished in Besancon, France. Evans finished 1:43 behind. He remained in second place overall, 1:53 behind Wiggins.

... A federal judge dismissed Lance Armstrong's lawsuit against the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency but says the cyclist can refile it within 20 days. The seven-time Tour de France champion sued USADA on Monday in an attempt to prevent it from moving forward with charges that he used performance-enhancing drugs throughout much of his career.

U.S. District Judge Sam Sparks criticized Armstrong's attorneys for filing an 80-page complaint he says seems more intended to whip up public opinion than to focus on the legal argument.
