Animal Kingdom supreme beyond all borders

True to its billing, as a World Cup, the 18th running of the richest horserace on the planet offered fresh courage and inspiration to those determined that frontiers should no longer be perceived as barriers. Over the past couple of years, they have endured dispiriting retrenchment by insular forces on either side of the Atlantic. In the United States, brave attempts to fill in a moat of drugs and dirt seem to have been defeated, for now, by vested interests. In Britain, meanwhile, momentous opportunity and investment have been dissipated by misapprehensions that seem barely less parochial. The champion who united the attention of both cultures on Saturday, however, offers a wholesome reproof to each.

With Winners Times Three, Triple Crown Settles Little

Now what? That was what horse owners and trainers who survived the Triple Crown were thinking Sunday in the wake of Ruler on Ice's improbable victory in the 143rd running of the Belmont Stakes. With long-shot winners in each of the three legs of the series, the 3-year-old division is still in search of a champion.

Wide-open still belongs to Animal Kingdom

If one image sums up the scrambled state of this year's three-year-old division, it's Animal Kingdom's clipping heels in the opening strides of Saturday's Belmont Stakes, eliminating his chances before the real running even started. The same tired theme has repeated itself all season: a talented colt, on the verge of solidifying his status as the leader of the classic generation, was tripped up -- only this time, it happened literally and not just figuratively.

International divide

Much like watching a traffic light turn yellow when you are just too far away to make it, it became clear with a few yards to go that Animal Kingdom was not going to be able to run down Shackleford in the final yards of the Preakness Stakes.

Could a Triple Crown champion finally emerge?

Secretariat, Seattle Slew, Affirmed...Animal Kingdom? That phrase sounds eerily similar to Sesame Street's "one of these things is not like the others." However, if Animal Kingdom should win the Preakness, the Triple Crown will be a forgone conclusion since not many three-year-olds are more apt to handle the grueling 1 1/2-miles of the Belmont Stakes than the son of Leroidesanimaux.

Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom gets green light for Preakness

Though admittedly "shocked" that he won America's most-famous race, trainer Graham Motion, a British expatriate, on Sunday morning had recovered enough to start focusing on the May 21 Preakness Stakes, which he said would be the next start for Animal Kingdom, the upset winner of Saturday's 137th Kentucky Derby at Churchill Downs.
