Animal
    (May 9, 2002- )
    Foaled (Born) in Florida
    Sire: Northern Afleet
    Dam: Maggy Hawk
    Owners: Chuck Zacney, Jennifer Reeves, Joe Lerro, Bob Brittingham and Joe Judge

    Jockey: Jeremy Rose
    Winner of the Belmont Stakes (2005) and Preakness Stakes (2005)
    Earnings for 2004-2005: $2,765,800
    He was favored to win the 2005 Kentucky Derby, the first of the Triple Crown races, but came in third place to longshot Giacomo.
    His owners are collectively known by the greedy title of 'Cash Is King.'
    The official site has a 'diary' told from the horse's point of view.
    Afleet Alex's name is linked to 'Alex'andra Scott, an 8-year-old who succumbed to brain cancer. Alex Scott raised money for cancer research by setting up a lemonade stand.
    The horse's official racing gear bears a lemon design in her honor.
    A portion of his winnings are donated to juvenile cancer research.
    Coming around a turn during the Preakness, the horse and jockey nearly fell onto the race track. Jockey Jeremy Rose credited the spirit of young Alex Scott with keeping Afleet Alex in the race and the eventual win.
