Triple Crown Winner From Kentucky

Over the weekend, a KY native pulled off one of the biggest sporting achievements in the world. American Pharaoh was scheduled to be back home in the Bluegrass today after becoming the first Triple Crown winning horse in 37 years!!
After winning the Kentucky derby, followed by the Preakness, the horse did what 37 previous have failed to do! American Pharaoh won the Belmont Stakes on Saturday and won the Triple Crown.
Trainer, Bob Baffert, had the house on display for everyone at Belmont yesterday as the champion horse posed for pictures and let bystanders pet him.

American Pharaoh will have some rest now after a schedule that saw him win five Grade 1 races in the last 2 ½ months.
While the horse will run again this year according to Baffert, which races planned for the future are still yet to be determined.
Many believe the goal is the 5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic, this Halloween at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky.

Horse racing has always been an exciting sport to watch!  This weekend is the Belmont Race, last race of the season.

The leading challengers behind American Pharoah are Frosted, the fourth-place finisher at the Kentucky Derby, who received 5-1 odds on Wednesday, and Materiality, the sixth-place finisher at the Kentucky Derby, who has 6-1 odds. Neither of the top two challengers participated in the Preakness.

The field will feature only eight horses, the smallest field since 2007, after a pair were pulled from the event earlier this week.
