Animal Kingdom won the 137th running of the Kentucky Derby under trainer Graham Motion. Motion admitted Tuesday after morning workouts that it would take a “special horse” to win another one and he thinks Irish War Cry might be special enough.

The New Jersey-bred horse has won 4 of 5 career starts, most recently the Wood Memorial Stakes.
