American Pharoah has now beaten Golden Horn for the title of world’s best horse.
American Pharoah one is now the first horse in almost 40 years to win the US triple Crown and subsequently tack on the Breeders Cup Classic. With that, American Pharaoh has topped the Longines World’s Best Rachorse rankings, sitting now at 134, beating Golden Horn by 4 lbs.
American Pharoah’s history is certainly impressive. There was only one defeat for the successful horse, last year at the Travers Stakes at Saratoga.
The new award for American Pharoah comes just three days after he got all the required votes to win the US Horse of the Year award.
His trainer, Bob Baffert said “I’ve had a lot of talented horses but he just kept bringing it. He was that type of horse.”
Now, American Pharoah is retired at Ashford Stud in Kentucky with his fee set at US$200,000
If one thing is for sure, “American Pharoah is a horse of a lifetime” as Ahmed Zayat stated. This is probably the most fitting description for one of the most successful racehorses in recent history.
