6/4/2019 First for Animal Kingdom

Former Arrowfield shuttler Animal Kingdom (Leroidesanimaux) was provided with his first Group 1 winner yesterday, courtesy of Angel Of Truth’s (3 g ex Scarletini by Bernardini) victory in the Australian Derby (Gr 1, 2400m).
The Gwenda Markwell-trained three-year old stamped himself as a contender for the Group 1 when winning the Tulloch Stakes (Gr 2, 2000m) at Rosehill last Saturday. Animal Kingdom is standing at Darley’s Jonabell Farm in Kentucky for a fee of US$15,000 and he shuttled to Australia for four seasons.
