Animal Kingdom's career is once again on hold. Last year's Kentucky Derby winner came up lame -- with soreness in the same leg that required surgery last June -- during a training run in Florida according to his Maryland-based trainer, Graham Motion. "Disappointed for everyone involved," he wrote on Twitter, "especially the horse. Hope to get him back on the track. " Motion and Team Valor CEO Barry Irwin had planned for Animal Kingdom, who had run in just one race since being hurt in the Belmont, to run in the $10 million Dubai World Cup on March 31. “This is a crushing blow for our company and our partners as well as our trainer, who has done such a great job getting the horse back to this point,” Irwin said.

The remarkable story of Xtra Heat will continue tomorrow in the Persian Gulf city of Dubai, where the $5,000 Maryland filly will run for $1.2 million in the richest sprint race in the world. Not only will Xtra Heat compete, but she'll likely be favored in the $2 million Dubai Golden Shaheen ($1.2 million to the winner). The six-furlong dash is part of the seven-race, $15.25 million Dubai World Cup program that in seven years has become, along with the Breeders' Cup World Thoroughbred Championships in this country, one of racing's preeminent events.

Team Valor International, owner of 2011 Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom, has announced that Maryland-based trainer Graham Motion is once again hoping to prep the horse for a run in the $10 million Dubai World Cup next spring. Animal Kingdom finished a charging second in the Breeders' Cup Mile on Nov. 3, despite not racing for 259 days while recovering from a small fracture -- his second such injury since the 2011 Belmont. The colt stood in Motion's barn in Fair Hill for the beginning of the year, as Motion trained his best 3-year-olds toward this year's Kentucky Derby.

Rain in the desert? How about torrential downpours that waterlogged the sand track at Nad Al Sheba yesterday and rained out the second running of the $4 million Dubai World Cup for perhaps several days.The storm struck the track in the desert of the Persian Gulf land in midafternoon while the 13 international stars in the cast -- notably, Siphon and Sandpit -- were resting in their barns. Siphon and Sandpit were favored to repeat their winning finish in the $1 million Santa Anita Handicap and to wave the flag, as Cigar did last year when he won the inaugural performance of the race.

A nuclear scan helped doctors diagnose Animal Kingdom with the start of a stress fracture in his hind end. The injury won't require surgery, and the Kentucky Derby winner could return to full training after 30 days of rest and 60 days of light work. But his connections also raised the possibility of retirement so that the colt could be put out to stud. "Team Valor's interest is to run the horse for another year," Team Valor International CEO Barry Irwin said in a statement.
