American Pharoah is an American Thoroughbred racehorse who won the American Triple Crown and the Breeders' Cup Classic in 2015. In winning all four races, he became the first horse to win the "Grand Slam" of American horse racing
LEXINGTON, Ky. — Bob Baffert began his final full day as American Pharoah's trainer by walking the Triple Crown and Breeders' Cup Classic winner into the middle of an adoring crowd outside his Keeneland barn. More than 200 people, many clutching cameras, pressed close to the thoroughbred, who stayed remarkably calm as always despite the tumult. Hands reached out to pet the champ. Some people cried while others presented him with his favorite snack of peeled baby carrots. American Pharoah seemed to be enjoying his first full day of retirement Sunday.
