The priorities for Graham Motion haven’t changed — family first, everything else follows. And that includes Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom.
Animal Kingdom, who pulled off a 20-1 upset in the Kentucky Derby on May 7, has been named the favorite for Saturday’s Preakness Stakes at Pimlico Race Course.
Graham Motion loves being surrounded by acres of lush grass while working in peaceful solitude at the Fair Hill Training Center. Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom does, too, it seems.
Johnny Valasquez was a late add as jockey of Animal Kingdom. But, it paid off BIG for Cecil County’s own Derby winner.
