American Pharoah's quest for immortality
05/22/2015 08:00 PM
Friday American Pharoah went for a gallop at Churchill Downs. Nothing was out of the routine. The Kentucky Derby and Preakness champion is trying to become the first horse since 1978 to win the Triple Crown.
However, the Belmont is the longest race of the three, and several of the Todd Pletcher horses are fresh, having skipped the Preakness, and are ready to give American Pharoah all he can handle.
Marc Johnson of Thorough Race Nation talks about American Pharoah’s quest, and also how valuable the horse has become, even two weeks out from the third triple crown race.
