Pretty cool accomplishment for American Pharoah...hasn't been done since 1978. The 12th horse ever.

Yep never thought I'd see it in my lifetime, but he made it look easy. For a horse bought at a auction for 300k they sure are gonna get there money back plus some!

I think the owner bred this horse. He was set to be sold for at auction and the owner bought the horse. Owner sold the horse to himself.

Anytime, a horse wins from start to finish and lengthens at the end, he is spectacular.

Not Secreteriat, but compares to almost any other triple crown winner!

Was camping with the family and had a text waiting at the truck when we got back, definitely capped off a good weekend.

I wouldn't be surprised if Mine That Bird (Derby winner '09) ends up packing out an elk :) Possibly one of that greatest stories of horse racing. He's riding trails in New Mexico & Colorado these days.

This Triple Crown was insanely impressive. First one in my lifetime, hope to see a few more. Can't wait to see what his babies end up doing.
