A horse of the world

Stud Comments

Animal Kingdom is truly a “horse of the world”, bringing the genetic strength of England, Ireland, France, Germany and Brazil to the United States and Australia.

The highpoints of Animal Kingdom's racing career to date are history-making victories in two of the world's very best Group 1 races, the Kentucky Derby and the Dubai World Cup.

His brilliant 2.75 length win in the 137th Kentucky Derby was achieved at only his fifth start, and remarkably, his first on dirt, a feat unmatched in the race's history. A triple Crown bid looked a real possibility, but a luckless trip in the Preakness in which he was second, and a catastrophic start in the Belmont put paid to that.

The 2012 Dubai World Cup looked a viable target, but Animal Kingdom was injured when winning impressively at his 4YO return in a Gulfstream allowance and so he spent the major part of 2012 on the sidelines. However, his trainer Graham Motion planned an audacious return for him in the Group 1 Breeders’ Cup Mile on turf. After being pocketed until late in the straight, he flew home to run the unluckiest of seconds in a world record 1.31.78 behind US Horse Of The Year Wise Dan.

Animal Kingdom resumed with a fighting second to multiple Group 1 winner Point of Entry in the Group 1 Gulfstream Park Turf H. at Gulfstream on 9 February 2013.
He then travelled to the UAE for the $US10 million Dubai World Cup Gr1 on 30 March at Meydan where his resounding two-length victory confirmed his status as a major international performer of the highest class. He is the first Australian-owned World Cup winner and the first US-trained horse to win the race on the synthetic Tapeta track at Meydan.

New challenges now beckon for this exceptional horse. No Kentucky Derby winner since Secretariat has won a Group 1 race on turf.
