No matter how much I yelled “go, go, go!!!” at the TV set, Animal Kingdom wasn’t able to catch Shackleford before the wire. He made a good run for it but ran out of track too soon.
Shackleford ran a great race, leading wire to wire. He’s obviously not a distance horse but the Preakness suited him just fine.
Here’s the race.
One thought on “Shackleford takes the Preakness; no Triple Crown for Animal Kingdom”
Thanks so much for posting the race. I couldn’t watch it so this was a nice surprise!
