Second winner for Animal Kingdom


Second winner for Animal Kingdom

John O’Shea has consistently expressed his enthusiasm for Godolphin’s first group of Animal Kingdom juveniles and today he sent out the Dubai World Cup champion’s second winner.

Platinum scored a determined win at his third start over 1200 metres at Ballarat, after sitting four wide most of the way and then out-finishing the rapidly closing Give, with Super Snob almost 1.5 lengths back, third.

Watch Platinum win at Ballarat.

A homebred for Darley, Platinum is out of the city-winning mare Swishes, a half-sister to Group winner Le Zagaletta. Swishes is the dam of six winners from as many foals to race, including stakes-placed gelding Demonstrate.

Animal Kingdom has now compiled two smart winners, Platinum and TDN Rising Star Earth Angel (ex Miss Finland by Redoute’s Choice) on 8 March, and four placegetters (Momentum To Win, Animalia, Desert Flower & Seductive Miss) from eight runners. Earth Angel’s next assignment is likely to be in Melbourne stakes company next month.

Animal Kingdom has a quality consignment of 11 yearlings on offer at the 2017 Inglis Easter Sale: five colts and four fillies in Arrowfield’s draft, and a pair of fillies presented by Tartan Fields.
