This Video of American Pharoah as a 2-Year-Old Will Give You Chills

Watching American Pharoah triumph in the Triple Crown this year was a thing of beauty, but it’s always interesting to see where these great horses came from. This video of a private workout by the Pioneerofthenile colt as a 2-year-old is sure to give you a good case of goosebumps.

No wonder there was such a buzz around AP — after seeing this work, there were several exclamations, including one person saying he was “scared of this horse.” Slap some chill-inducing music on the video, and you’ve got a pure spectacle of equine locomotion.
