 2011 Kentucky Derby results - Animal Kingdom Pulls Out Shocker At Churchill Downs
posted 5 years ago

Online Preakness betting players are waiting for the field to shake out for the “Run For The Black-Eyed Susans” on May 21st, but they know one horse will be in the field for sure: Animal Kingdom, the longshot who came out of nowhere last Saturday at Churchill Downs to stun the crowd at the 137th Kentucky Derby.

 

2011 Kentucky Derby results - Animal Kingdom Pulls Out Shocker At Churchill Downs - The big news leading up to the Derby was the scratching of Uncle Mo, who was one of the horse betting favorites alongside Dialed In, but jockey John Velasquez was now available. In a twist of fate, Animal Kingdom’s usual jockey, Robbie Albarado, broke his nose in another race and even though he thought he could go, Animal Kingdom’s stable decided to go with Velasquez. Some may think that it was a tough thing for Albarado to handle, and it was, but fate was looking out for Velasquez, who had come to the Derby for three straight years on a horse that was near the top of the list when it comes to favorites, only for the horse to be a late scratch because of injury. Now, Velasquez would have to try and navigate a horse who had never raced on dirt through the field.

 

The race started out pretty evenly as there was a big pack of horses, and there were a lot of eyes on Twice The Appeal, the horse that was ridden by Calvin Borel, who has won three of the last four Derbies by getting as close to the rail as possible. But the attention soon shifted to the front, where Shackleford was setting the pace with Nehro and Mucho Macho Man hot on his heels. The three were in the midst of separating themselves from the field, and those familiar with WWE Monday Night Raw would have likened this to a Triple Threat match.

However, along came Animal Kingdom on the outside after spending most of the race in that dangerous back, and once he got some room to stretch his legs, Animal Kingdom stormed past the top three horses and seemed to be getting faster down the stretch. Nehro and Mucho Macho Man came in behind Animal Kingdom, while Shackleford faded to fourth.

 

It’s going to be an interesting race at Pimlico in a couple of weeks as Animal Kingdom will be in the field, and the usual suspects will be in Baltimore as Mucho Macho Man will look to make a race of it, while Nehro and Dialed In are both listed at possible. But at Churchill Downs, it was all about Animal Kingdom, who was listed at 20-1 (more in some books), and he paid off very well for those who are Horse Racing Odds Online.  Check out the latest 2011 NFL Week 1 Odds , 2011 Kentucky Oaks Results and More 2011 Kentucky Derby Results.
