Triple Crown winner American Pharoah will be coming out of the number four gate in Saturday’s Breeders’ Cup Classic. Veteran Horse Racing Journalist Caton Bredar says American Pharoah could not have gotten a better post draw.

American Pharoah will try to become the first horse to ever win both the Triple Crown and the Breeders’ Cup Classic in the same year, being called the Grand Slam.
However the three year old might get some tough competition from an older filly who likes running with (or against) the big boys.
