Less than 24 hours after making history, Triple Crown winner American Pharoah returned to a hero’s welcome at Churchill Downs.

After a police escort from the airport to track, horse racing’s newest royalty was paraded by members of the media on the way to Barn 33 — that of trainer Bob Baffert.

On Saturday, June 13, Churchill Downs will host its “Downs After Dark” Stephen Foster Handicap celebration, during which American Pharoah will be honored. Fans will watch as the three-year-old colt is paraded around the track. The event is also traditionally a time for the Kentucky Derby winner’s engraved trophies to be presented to the winning owner, trainer, jockey and breeders.
