American Pharoah’s First Crop a Hot Commodity

American Pharoah’s First Crop a Hot Commodity

Three years after breaking the 37-year Triple Crown drought, the one and only Grand Slam champion American Pharoah is inspiring the racing world again, this time with his eye-catching first crop. His Triple Crown winning trainer Bob Baffert himself is among the many purchasing American Pharoah’s produce which will begin racing in 2019.

A closer look at 2018 Triple Crown winner Justify parading on Stephen Foster Night. And a fan asking Bob Baffert to play guitar for us, which he did during one of the Triple Crown broadcasts. Freebird!

@shinanniegh Yeah I know they said that. Which is why I’m confused by Baffert saying he might not race again. Someone’s not talking to someone apparently if he thinks that.

Undefeated Justify is the 13th Triple Crown Winner!

Only the second undefeated Triple Crown victor in history, Justify helps Bob Baffert also become only the second trainer to win the Triple Crown twice. Mike Smith was the winning jockey, and it was his third winning ride in the Belmont Stakes.

European invader Gronkowski was second. Hofburg was third. Vino Rosso was fourth.

Beginning his career in February Justify went on to become the first horse since Apollo in 1882 to win the Kentucky Derby without having raced at two. It was the rainiest Kentucky Derby on record. He won a muddy and foggy Preakness Stakes at Pimlico, and now on a Sunny day at Belmont Park – after six straight winning races – Justify can finally take some time off after taking home the Triple Crown.
