Ballarat Double for Animal Kingdom
Tara Madgwick - Tuesday, 7 November 2017
Animal Kingdom (USA) featured with a winning double at Ballarat on Monday with two well bred colts saluting, one a half-brother to Weekend Hussler and the other from a daughter of Alinghi.

The Darren Weir trained Peaceful State scored by a neck over 1400 metres as favourite at his second start and with a big margin back to the third horse it looked like the first two were well above their rivals.
