NEW YORK (AP) —  Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom is a go for the Belmont Stakes on June 11.

Trainer Graham Motion says the 3-year-old colt came out of his second-place finish in the Preakness in fine shape and will remain at Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton, Md., until the week of the race at Belmont Park.

Preakness winner Shackleford is not yet a definite for the final leg of the Triple Crown. Trainer Dale Romans says he wants to wait a few days before deciding.

The last rematch in the Belmont between the Derby and Preakness winners was 2005, when Preakness winner Afleet Alex defeated Derby winner Giacomo.

Animal Kingdom will attempt to become the 12th horse to complete a Derby-Belmont double.
