BELMONT PARK WORKOUT FLASH QUOTES


Animal Kingdom, four furlong bullet in 47.76 over main track with jockey John Velazquez aboard, fastest of 32 works at distance (fractions were 24.18, 47.76, 1:00.06, 1:14.38)

Barry Irwin, Founder and CEO, Team Valor International: “I liked it. It looked like he handled it really nicely. He looked like a grass horse. He was like an inch off the ground. It looked like he was moving great. It looked like he went in 50. I think he’s got a lot of energy, still. I think that’s the key with him. He didn’t look like a tired horse or anything.”
