Queen Anne for Animal Kingdom
Click here to open this alert in a new page

G1 Dubai World Cup and GI Kentucky hero Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux {Brz}) has been confirmed for Royal Ascot’s G1 Queen Anne S. over a mile June 18. It will be the 5-year-old’s final start before he stands the 2013 Southern Hemisphere breeding season at Arrowfield Stud in Australia. "We had discussed the possibility of either the Queen Anne S. or the G1 Prince of Wales’s S.," explained trainer Graham Motion. "But after walking the course, I feel the mile in the Queen Anne will afford our horse plenty of ground. We had only considered the other race because it is run over the same mile-and-a-quarter distance as the Kentucky Derby and World Cup." Motion continued, "The owners (Arrowfield Stud, Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum and Team Valor International) prefer a credential for the horse at a mile and I think the uphill nature of the Ascot course will be a stiff enough test to allow his stamina to come into play. The mile at Ascot is closer to a mile-and-an-eighth race in America because of the layout and if Animal Kingdom were racing in America at this time, we probably would be running him over that distance. The Queen Anne also fits nicely into my training schedule for Animal Kingdom since we freshened him up after his trip to Dubai."
