Animal Kingdom has returned

Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom came back to his… err… kingdom, at the Fair Hill Training Center in Elkton Tuesday.

The horse is expected to jog on the main track at the complex at 8:30 a.m. Wednesday. Animal Kingdom’s trailer left Barn 22 at Churchill Downs at 5:15 this morning, according to the Maryland Jockey Club.

Trainer Graham Motion said he hasn’t decided whether Animal Kingdom will work before the Preakness. So far, the list of Preakness contenders remains at 20, consisting of seven that ran in the Derby and 13 newcomers.

Baltimore’s 136th Preakness Stakes will be held May 21.
