I am truly grateful to have been able to watch American Pharoah... His win yesterday brought tears to my eyes because of everything he has done for the sport. Every time he ran it was as if the world was on his shoulders and he gave a solid effort each and every time. I don't know where he will go down in the history as one of the 'greats', but I do know that we will probably not see another one like him. What he did yesterday was go out in style, tied the biggest margin, and set a new track record by FIVE SECONDS. He was given a 120 Beyer Speed Figure which is hard to come by in this day in time. We're going to miss you AP.
Thank you for the terrific ride...
It's really not necessarily about who he beat, but how he did it. The Triple Crown is difficult to accomplish because of the time frame, three different race tracks, and three different distances. AP is not "garbage".
I couldn't agree with you more!
I'm sorry, but I have to sit-back and laugh at all who bet against Pharoah. This is a horse for the AGES!!! If he's healthy no one I repeat NO ONE is going to beat him. He has the best kick and can withstand any decent pace.. He's on a class all by himself.
It's crazy how he ran a faster 1 1/4 mile in the Belmont then he did in the KY Derby!
How tall is he??! LOOKS HUGE!
I agree with you 100%!
Okay so a race between California Chrome & Shared Belief at a 1 1/4 at Santa Anita who win's?
So IF he wins the triple crown does he win Horse of the Year??
@AnneShaw I agree with you 100%
