Other trainers and owners, Bill Beatson said, took a look at the Alfred G. Vanderbilt Handicap, saw the name "Shackleford" and passed. Even Beatson, and his partners at Dark Hollow Farms, David and JoAnn Hayden, knew that a win against the 2011 Preakness winner would be unlikely. They decided to enter the horse, Poseidon's Warrior, anyway, and so on Sunday the Maryland-bred horse was at the gate of an off track at the grade I race at Saratoga. His odds were 36-1, the second longest shot in the field.

Preakness winner Shackleford worked five furlongs in 1 minute, 0.3 seconds Saturday morning at Belmont Park, after which trainer Dale Romans announced that the horse will run in the 143rd renewal of the Grade 1 $1 million Belmont Stakes next Saturday. "As long as he comes out of the work good he will run," Romans said after conferring via telephone with owner Michael Lauffer. "I think he's going to be very competitive. " The announcement sets up a rubber match between Shackleford and Kentucky Derby winner Animal Kingdom that will represent just the 22nd time in the history of the Triple Crown that the Derby and Preakness winners have met in the Belmont.

What a scene it would have been. Bodemeister, the 4-1 morning line favorite, seemed to run effortlessly around most of track at Churchill Downs on Saturday, opening a lead of four lengths coming out of the final turn. He would have been trainer Bob Baffert's fourth Kentucky Derby winner. He would have invoked reverential talk of horses gone by. He would have been the next one with a true shot at ending a Triple Crown drought that has lasted since 1978. But Bodemeister - whose name comes from a nickname for Baffert's son Bode - got tired.

Trainer Dale Romans said Sunday morning there is a better than 50 percent chance Preakness winner Shackleford will run in the Belmont Stakes in three weeks. "If he trains like he did going into the Derby, I don't know why we would pass," Romans said. "I've always thought, just like Woody Stevens said along time ago, that the Belmont is really a speed horse's race. A mile and a half is such a grueling race, they'll all be tired when they get to the eighth pole. " Romans said he hopes Animal Kingdom will be there as well because a rivalry between the two would be good for horse racing.

Kentucky Derby winnerAnimal Kingdom was made a 2-1 morning-line favorite Wednesday for the 143rd running of the Belmont Stakes after he drew the No. 9 stall in the post position draw. Animal Kingdom, who is conditioned by Maryland trainer Graham Motion, will have his work cut out for him as he tries to become just the 12th horse to win the Derby and the Belmont. Only four winners have come from that position since 1905. But Motion said he doesn't think it will matter much. When horses are running a mile and a half, post position is less important.
