Animal Kingdom Arrives at Keeneland

Animal Kingdom wins on the Gulfstream Turf

Team Valor International’s Animal Kingdom, winner of the 2011 Kentucky Derby presented by Yum! Brands (G1), returned to Keeneland Monday night from his home base at Fair Hill, Md., to continue his preparation for his return to the races.

Animal Kingdom, who broke his maiden here in his second start exactly two years ago, trained here for nearly a month prior to his win in the Kentucky Derby. He will not be here nearly as long this time as he is scheduled to ship to California on Saturday for an expected start in the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1) at Santa Anita on November 3.

Trained by Graham Motion, Animal Kingdom has not raced since a February 18 allowance victory on grass at Gulfstream Park. The Leroidesanimaux (BRZ) colt is scheduled to have his final pre-Breeders’ Cup work here this week.

With regular exercise rider David Nava aboard, Animal Kingdom came to the main track Tuesday morning at 8:30. Accompanied by a pony, Animal Kingdom jogged up the stretch to the middle of the far turn and then galloped a little more than 1¼ miles on his own.
