Third Stakes Winner for Animal Kingdom
Arrowfield shuttler Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux–Dalicia, by Acatenango) sired his second stakes winner when his 2YO son Untamed Domain won the Gr2 Summer Stakes (1600m) at Woodbine on Sunday. Bred by Clearsky Farms, Untamed Domain is prepared by Animal Kingdom's trainer Graham Motion for West Point Thoroughbreds. The victory earned him an automatic entry in the $US1 million Gr1 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Turf in November. Untamed Domain joins Animal Kingdom's other NH stakes winners, Continental Divide and Sunny Skies. Animal Kingdom also produced a highly impressive debut winner at Woodbine named Grace And Dignity. The 2YO filly, who traces her female lineage to Secret Verdict, the fifth dam of Champion Australian Sire Snitzel, bolted up by 5 lengths in a six furlong maiden on Saturday. Capping a memorable weekend for Animal Kingdom was Darley's home-bred 3YO Animalia posted who posted his second win over 1600 metres at Newcastle on Friday. Animal Kingdom is currently serving his fourth Australian book of mares at Arrowfield at a fee of $27,500 inc. GST.
