Animal Kingdom on the biggest day of his life
Animal Kingdom strides to the winner’s circle with Alan Garcia after winning the Spiral Stakes (III), going on to win the Kentucky Derby (I) afterwards. Is the same fate in the cards for similarly-connected Went the Day Well?
Kentucky Derby hopeful Went the Day Well worked 6 furlongs in company with Crimson China at Keeneland yesterday, timed in 1:14.45. The Spiral Stakes winner is owned by Team Valor International and is trained by Graham Motion— the same connections as last year’s winner Animal Kingdom.
