Description: American Pharoah (KY) B , C, foaled February 2, 2012 (Pioneerof the Nile - Littleprincessemma, by Yankee Gentleman) completes his racing career with a flourish in winning the 10 furlong $5 million Grade I Breeders' Cup World Championships Classic at Keeneland October 31, 2015. Regular rider Victor Espinoza was along for the ride. American Pharoah kicked away from the star studded field and never looked back. He coasted into the Clubhouse turn with Effinex trying to keep the pressure on. He raced up the back stretch and into the far turn. He took a breather and gave the packed house at Keeneland what they came for. Effinex, Tonalist, and Frosted appeared to be the danger as the three of them came to within a length of the leader, however, American Pharoah hit another gear and off he went to roll home by 5 1/2 lengths. Jockey Espinoza knew what he had under him without a doubt. His well timed 'pose' at the finish line said it all, no one was going to beat American Pharoah today. Effinex stayed on to finish second, 4 1/2 lengths in front of Honor Code. American Pharoah wins his Swan Song. He finishes his racing career with a record of 9-1-0 from 11 starts and has earnings of $8,650,300. He is a homebred of Zayat Stables and his trainer is Bob Baffert. The racing world has coined a new phrase, 'The Grand Slam'. A Triple Crown winner and a Breeders' Cup Classic winner...will there ever be another? Drawing by Daily Racing Funnies ®.
