By: SPORTS NETWORK
Elkton, MD (Sports Network) - 2011 Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom had his first workout of the new year Monday morning at Fair Hill Training Center. The four-year-old is owned by Team Valor and trained by Graham Motion.
Animal Kingdom worked three-furlongs under James Slater in tandem with Toby's Corner, last year's Wood Memorial champ. Both horses were caught in 49 seconds for a half-mile. On December 24 Animal Kingdom went three-furlongs in 38 seconds at Fair Hill.
Dr, Dean Richardson performed surgery on Animal Kingdom to repair a left leg fracture last summer at University of Pennsylvania's New Bolton Center. The colt had finished second to Shackleford in the Preakness Stakes and sixth to Ruler On Ice in the Belmont Stakes.
