That is a total understatement I know and those words do not do Animal Kingdom’s win in tonights Dubai World Cup justice but we are all so happy here. To think that our AK can go over there and win the worlds richest race. With the Tapeta riding slow it seemed a good move to go early as he was moving so easily and happily, but that stretch run seemed to last foreeeeeever. Joel Rosario had trouble pulling him up as Animal Kingdom had his ears pricked and was ready to go around again!
It was the second fastest World Cup. Many congratulations to Graham, Team Valor and Arrowfield Stud for a dream come true. Below is a link to the BloodHorse article and race video.
