Animal Kingdom Looking Great for Belmont

Kentucky Derby winner and Preakness runner-up Animal Kingdom is doing “super,” said trainer Graham Motion, and will resume galloping tomorrow morning in preparation for the Belmont Stakes.

 

“He jogged today and he was rather full of himself,” said Motion from the training center at Fair Hill, Md. “He’ll gallop tomorrow and have a week of galloping until he breezes next week.”

 

Motion is hoping to work the son of Leroidesanimaux next Monday, but has not decided whether it will be at Fair Hill or Belmont Park.

 

“I kind of want to see how the weather will be,” he said. “In an ideal world, I would like to breeze him next Monday, but I don’t want to ship and have to work him up there over a sloppy track.”

 

Also on Belmont Stakes day, Motion plans to run multiple graded stakes winner Gypsy’s Warning in the Grade 1 Foxwoods Just a Game, a one-mile turf race for fillies and mares. The winner of last fall’s Grade 1 Matriarch finished seventh over a yielding course in the Grade 2 Jenny Wiley at Keeneland on April 16 in her lone start of 2011.

 

Smart Bid, runner-up to Get Stormy in the Grade 1 Woodford Reserve Turf Classic at Churchill Downs on May 7, remains under consideration for the Grade 1 Woodford Reserve Manhattan Handicap on Belmont day, said Motion.
