Team Valor International's Animal Kingdom , winner of the 2011 Kentucky Derby Presented by Yum! Brands (gr. I), drew post 12 of 13 when the field was drawn March 27 for the $10 million Dubai World Cup sponsored by Emirates (UAE-I) to be run March 30 at Meydan.
Animal Kingdom, trained by Graham Motion, Besilu Stables' champion Royal Delta from the barn of Hall of Fame horseman Bill Mott, and Donegal Racing's grade I winner Dullahan are the American interests in a 13-horse lineup for the 1 1/4-mile World Cup. Royal Delta—bidding to become the first filly to win the race—leaves from post 8. Dullahan, trained by Dale Romans, goes from post 3.
