SmokeyThe Belmont Stakes is this weekend, and all eyes are on American Pharoah who is the latest of many horses to be a Triple Crown contender heading into the third jewel of the series. Perhaps you’ve seen some of the behind-the-scenes photos of AP with his track pony, an attractive buckskin American Quarter Horse named Smokey (registered name: This Whiz Shines). But did you know that before Smokey joined the Thoroughbred’s entourage, he was a competitive reiner? Check him out in his past life at the 2012 NRHA Futurity in the video below. Whatever happens at the Belmont, we’ll be cheering for Smokey.
