Animal Kingdom burst from the pack to win the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby and he heads to Baltimore as the like choice to win the 2011 Preakness Stakes.
I rode the synthetic train in past renewals of the Derby (Colonel
John, Pioneerof The Nile) but I abandoned ship this year. Perfect timing
I had nothing against Animal Kingdom in Louisville. After all, he was
my top choice in the Spiral Stakes and looked good in that Polytrack
affair. His lone Churchill drill was solid and I said on Oaks day during
a segment on Steve Bortstein’s morning radio show that he was the horse
I feared most along with Shackleford...
