I was very excited that American Pharoah ended a 37-year drought to win the Triple Crown at the Belmont Stakes. He is one super horse, and Victor Espinoza is one super jockey.
American Pharoah now joins Sir Barton (1919), Gallant Fox (1930), Omaha (1935), War Admiral (1937), Whirlaway (1941), Count Fleet (1943), Assault (1946), Citation (1948), Secretariat (1973), Seattle Slew (1977), and Affirmed (1978) in the exclusive club of Triple Crown winners.
I think American Pharoah is the greatest thoroughbred racehorse of all time. I also think that Victor Espinoza will be this year's Sports Illustrated Sportsman of the Year.
Congratulations, American Pharoah and Victor Espinoza, on winning the Triple Crown!
