What the Horse Racing Nation is talking about...

Who is left to even remotely challenge him? He has to run in the jockey club against offers or even the pacific classic. The travers is a joke at this point with how easily he won today. He makes it look so easy I wonder if they would consider Dubai next year if he keeps destroying these fields so easily
idk but I cant see one horse that has a prayer to beat him in the classic... maybe honor code>>>NOT
Like Mr. Zayat I am almost speechless after this victory. I too was so nervous before this race. I grew up watching Secretariat. I got goosebumps the size of golf balls watching Secretariat. I can't imagine loving a horse more, until American Pharaoh came along. When it is all said and done I believe we will be saying that American Pharaoh was the greatest Thoroughbred who ever raced. He was held back by Victor in smart fashion so as not to take too much out of him, but It didn't matter. Mr. Zayat and the entire American Pharaoh connections are not so much about breaking time records as they are about winning while keeping the horse happy. I believe without question that AP could have broken Secretariat's time record for the Belmont had Espinoza ALLOWED AP to run full out the way AP has always wanted to...and again in this race he could have had a much faster time had he been ALLOWED to run full out from start to finish. Kudos to Espinoza for being such a tactical and smart jockey. And congratulations to American Pharaoh for being breathtakingly beautiful. He will create winners for generations to come who are gentle and sweet. He is the PERFECT horse.
Sorry Egypt, we spell it Pharoah now!!!!
boy ive been following raceing less then two years and I could see the minute they broke it was over...what a true super horse...raceing will be sad when hes off the track!!!!
Today, i saw something that i thought i would bever see in my lifetime. Today, me and my family went to Monmouth Park to see a horse that accomplished something that very few have done in history. Today I saw American Pharoah, and today I saw him dominate his rivals like he always did. The whole racing card and the atmosphere at Monmouth was something I had never seen before. So many smiling faces and people cheering for American Pharaoh. When the Haskell was with 20 minutes to post to when American Pharoah crossed the finish line., I has never heard a roar and cheer so loud in my life at any sporting event. The crowd, atmosphere and overall experience was absolutely amazing. When American Pharoah crossed the line, tears were coming down my face. I had never been so happy at a racetrack in my life. So there are alot of thank yous I have to say for a truly memorable day. A day that I will tell my children and my grandchildren when I'm older. First thank you to the people of Monmouth Park for a memorable day, also, thank you to the Zayats for bringing AP to New Jersey to let us see a champion. Third, thank you to my awesome parents for taking me to the track and enjoying this incredible day. Most of all thank you American Pharoah, for being the champion you are and making more fans every day. This is a day I will never forget and I'm thankful for horses like American Pharoah. God Bless these wonderful animals.
Can't wait until next week. Half of this field belongs at the BCC.
Well we've all been saying it was going to be a romp for two months. Wow!! He was being restrained the whole stretch and still ran sub 1.48. Unfortunately I don't think they're going to let him break records unless he needs to. This field was also better then we thought it would be for awhile with two holdovers from the TC series and Competitive Edge. I personally wish Pletcher had run Stanford or Materiality but in the end this race served it's purpose. Give the fans a day to celebrate AP, make some money and get a relatively risk free ticket to the BCC.
Obviously American Pharoah is King but I would of liked to see a horse with true routing speed running on the engine and not some 1 turn cheap speed horse collapse like that. There's just no horse out there with that routing speed, unfortunately.
The whip is never even seen!!! https://youtu.be/teqfIIMQNJQ
Heavily eased at the finished and still won with being fourth fifths off the track record! We easily could have seen a track record if he let him run
This horse could have won by 20. What a sensational specimen.
I was laughing the whole way down the stretch. That was way too easy. Holy wow.
The most impressive thing about American Pharoah, at least to me, is how completely effortless his cruising speed is. A lot of horses have to be ask for run just to keep up with how fast he goes on cruise control. Really impressive!
Paid workout! Travers time!
  • Ruffianlover · I hope they skip it. What is the point of going there? No three year old can run with him at this point · 33 minutes ago
And I thought Beholder won effortlessly yesterday....
Bill Effing Murray!!!!
Toooooooooooooo easy! At no point were AP's ears anything but straight up in the air. Just relaxed the entire race. Maybe the easiest 1.1 million dollars anyone has ever made. I don't think we have seen his very best and we may never get to.
What a great race by keen ice I knew he was going to run well he was coming like a freight train. Congrats to AP but so proud of Keen Ice
Nice run for 2nd, with the Pharoah geared down. I do like him
