For 37 years, Thoroughbred fans around the world have been waiting for their next champion, a horse that could dominate the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes, and claim the Triple Crown. In 2015, a bay stallion named American Pharoah delivered and left the impression of a lifetime, becoming the 12th horse to win the Triple Crown since 1875.
After winning the Triple Crown, with the help of his owners, the Zayat Family, trainer Bob Baffert and jockey Victor Espinoza, American Pharoah did not rest until history was made. On October 31st, American Pharoah would continue on to race in the Breeders’ Cup soundly defeating all challengers, a feat no other Triple Crown winner has ever achieved. There’s no doubt that this incredible horse with his sweeping stride, pricked ears and abbreviated tail, will never be forgotten.
