Animal Kingdom Sets Sights on GP Turf 'Cap

Animal Kingdom, winner of the 2011 Kentucky Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), will prep for the 2013 Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) with a start in the $300,000 Gulfstream Park Turf Handicap (gr. IT) Feb. 9, Team Valor International announced Nov. 14.

The 4-year-old son of Leroidesanimaux returned from 259 days between races Nov. 3 to finish second by 1 1/2 lengths to Horse of the Year candidate Wise Dan in a record-setting edition of the Breeders' Cup Mile (gr. IT) at Santa Anita Park.

"I like the timing, the spacing and the surface," trainer Graham Motion said of the decision to prep Animal Kingdom for the $10 million World Cup via the February race at Gulfstream Park.
 
Between now and then, Animal Kingdom will have a respite, then be cranked up again to run 1 1/8 miles on the turf. He will have 50 days between that start and the March 30 renewal of the World Cup, 1 1/4 miles on Tapeta at Meydan.
