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.
this was a very nice tribute about chromes career & made a very good point on how chrome gave it his all every time he raced!chrome is a true class act with tons of personality & that's why he has so many fans that love him!Thanks for the memories Chrome!

That's exactly right, Nevada Horse Lover. You have your facts straight! Also, let's see what Tonalist REALLY has in the tank....NOT!
Karl, you are the DUMB ASS....a puppet, sheeple, with no mind of your own. Status quo is what you are.
You are bs waste of sperm!!!!!!!!! You need to learn what Peta discovers and does to fix the problems.
I was just wondering what happen to Matt Garcia? He was a nice friendly guy that used to shake hands and take photos with his fans. "Most of these jockey's are just too stuck-up for that."
