Preakness Stakes, It used to be an automatic thing that if you won the Derby you went to Pimlico as Patton crossed the Rhine. That has not been as common in recent years as the state of the Preakness has been reduced compared to its sister races of the Triple Crown. And now, suddenly, a horse that had never raced on earth can stop the decline in popularity of horse racing. That’s what two good minutes in Kentucky on the first Saturday of May you can do for you.
Looking back at the Derby and how is that Animal Kingdom was a stranger before the race and then won so easily, the gas coming down the stretch to blow past Nehra and Mucho Macho Man, it seems a mistake to have been out the fact the horse did not run on dirt before against him. This was hardly the fault of the horse.
The lesson and although Animal Kingdom will be the clear favorite in the Preakness Stakes field. Not many horses win the Preakness have not at least run at Churchill Downs, so although it is a larger field for the Preakness what has been in some years, the contestants seem clear.
Animal Kingdom, of course. Mucho Macho Man, third in the Derby, and Shackleford, who lead the Derby in the Animal Kingdom change before hit warp factor nine. Midnight Interlude was disappointing in the Derby, but the heavy ground would not suit him and there’s not much you can teach horse trainer Bob Baffert.
But any reasonable metric, the Preakness Animal Kingdom 2011 is lost. Every time you look back at the Kentucky Derby this year, Animal Kingdom trip seems easier, easier victory. Eleven horses have won the Derby and Preakness since Affirmed won the last Triple Crown in 1978. Animal Kingdom will be the twelfth, and we eagerly wait a day could return at Belmont Park on June 11.
