I Loved it!!!Finally!!!!!!
Thanks for showing it again. The most amazing thing to me was when he was trotted in front of the grandstand. If a horse could show “humility”, Pharaoh did. His eyes were remarkable, quiet and deep. I’ve been around a lot of horses, but not seen anything like that B4. A true workhorse. A great workhorse.
I missed it because we were at Mass, but got to see the reruns. You sure could feel the excitement.
finally a winner
That is one talented colt! The fact the he lost no weight in those five weeks, excellent condition, never even had to go to the whip, is a tribute to Bob Baffert. Trainer said take him to the lead and stay there, is exactly what the jockey did.
Absolutely, thrilling race and a well deserved place in history!
Awesome! Wish I had been there!
I’m so happy that he won the triple crown! he did great! went to the lead first thing and stayed there the whole 1 1/2 miles! that’s amazing to me! he is my favorite thoroughbred besides Secretariat and Bold Ruler his sire and his dam Somethingroyal. way to go American Pharoah I was cheering for you all the way! so proud of you!
