American horses have struggled at Meydan since the Dubai World Cup moved to the new facility several years ago, but 2011 Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom proved to be the exception to the rule. Stalking the early pace and then unleashing a powerful move to the front on the far turn, Animal Kingdom turned back all challengers to win the world's riches race, the $10 million Dubai World Cup.

Animal Kingdom is the first American-based horse to win the Dubai World Cup since Well Armed in 2009. He is the ninth American horses to win the race since it's inception in 1996.

Animal Kingdom is a five-year-old horse by Leroidesanimaux (BRZ) out of the Acatenango (GER) mare Dalcia), trained by Graham Motion and ridden by Joel Rosario. It's possible Animal Kingdom will race one more time in his career at Royal Ascot in June before heading off to stud duty in Australia.
