What a race. I’m still speechless. I was beginning to believe that I’d never see it done in my lifetime, that the early-summer ritual of hype would stretch on endlessly for the rest of my life. I am especially excited for what a win for American Pharoah may mean for us as Eventers. Several times in the course of the coverage, considerable energy was invested in talking about what a “pet” American Pharoah is. With mare owners undoubtedly lining up around the block, I’m hoping that in addition to his athleticism he passes that temperament on. A great athlete with a great brain is hard to find, and if American Pharoah can bring that to the table it will be excellent for those of us in the “secondary thoroughbred market”.
