Animal Kingdom to Work on Keeneland Turf Friday

Animal Kingdom wins on the Gulfstream Turf

Team Valor International’s Animal Kingdom, winner of the 2011 Kentucky Derby presented by Yum! Brands (G1), is one of five horses pre-entered in next week’s Breeders’ Cup World Championships scheduled to work on the turf Friday morning at Keeneland.

Trained by Graham Motion, Animal Kingdom is scheduled to work in company for his final major move in preparation for the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Mile (G1).

Also expected to work Friday on the turf are Ice Wine Stable’s Almost an Angel (pre-entered in the $500,000 Breeders’ Cup Juvenile Sprint with second preference in the $2 million Grey Goose Juvenile Fillies, G1) and Houyhnhnm Farm’s Great Attack ($1 million Turf Sprint, G1) for trainer Wesley Ward; Bona Venture Stables’ Summer of Fun ($1 million Juvenile Fillies Turf, G1) for trainer George Weaver; and Tri-Star Racing, Joe Denson and Brent Gasaway’s Brown Almighty ($1 million Juvenile Turf, G1) for trainer Tim Ice.

Trainer Ken McPeek said Shortleaf Stable’s Atigun, pre-entered in the $500,000 Breeders’ Cup Marathon (G2), would work Friday or Saturday on the main track.

Three pre-entered horses are scheduled for main-track works Saturday.

Shadwell Turf Mile (G1) runner-up Willcox Inn, owned by Lael Stables and All in Stable and trained by Michael Stidham, is pre-entered in the Breeders’ Cup Mile.

Trainer Tom Amoss said Klaravich Stables and William Lawrence’s Sum of the Parts, winner of the opening-day Stoll Keenon Ogden Phoenix (G3), would have his final work Saturday for the $1.5 million Xpressbet Breeders’ Cup Sprint (G1) in company with Global Power (Turf Sprint). Owned by Luch Racing Stable, Global Power sits first on the preference list for the Turf Sprint and would need one defection to make the 14-horse field. Amoss said both horses would ship to California on Monday.
