2013 Dubai World Cup – Animal Kingdom

Video Provided By: Partymanners2

The drought for America in the Dubai World Cup (UAE-I) came to an end March 30 when champion Animal Kingdom galloped clear in the homestretch for a spectacular score at Meydan Racecourse. Joel Rosario rode the 2011 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I) victor to a 2 1/2-length triumph in the $10 million event—the world’s richest horse race —for trainer Graham Motion and owners Arrowfield Stud and Team Valor International. Australia also shares in this World Cup victory as a majority interest in the 5-year-old son of Leroidesanimaux, who was purchased by John Messara’s Aussie-based Arrowfield from Barry Irwin’s Team Valor last December. Animal Kingdom is to begin his stud career later this year in Australia. Since 2010, when the World Cup relocated to Meydan and its Tapeta racing surface, no American-based horse had been in the top three finishers in the international event. http://www.bloodhorse.com/horse-racin…
