The trainer of 2012 Kentucky Derby winner, I'll Have Another, was at the Baltimore Ravens Rookie Mini-Camp this afternoon and met head coach John Harbaugh before addressing the media. Doug O'Neill answered questions ranging from what he thinks about not being the favorite in next week's Preakness Stakes to what team he grew up rooting for.
Harbaugh called it an "honor" to have the training staff of the Derby champ here today. O'Neill said that winning the Derby provided him with the chance to be invited to the Ravens practice facility and although he admitted he grew up in Detroit as a Lions fan, he was a Ravens fan today.
In discussing his horse and chance to win the second leg of the Triple Crown, he shrugged and compared his horse to the Ravens quarterback, calling him a "four-legged Joe Flacco."
