Nothing comes easy in the nerve-racking weeks before the Belmont Stakes with a Triple Crown on the line.
Talk about a tough crowd.
Looking to pull off another remarkable race, Animal Kingdom's trip from the back of the pack at the Preakness Stakes came up half a length short.
In on a sloppy track Thursday morning, Shackleford looked like the best horse in the world. If he could just run the Preakness then, co-owner Mike Lauffer said, he would have won.
Trainer Dale Romans said the horse emerged in good shape and is encouraged by subsequent workouts suggesting that he's up for another challenge.
"This is such an important race, we just don't want to pass it up," Romans said.
