For 37 years, Thoroughbred fans around the world have been waiting for the next great horse to win racing's Triple Crown: the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes. In 2015, a stallion named American Pharoah delivered. Owned by Zayat Stables and trained by the legendary Bob Baffert, American Pharoah and jockey Victor Espinoza fought hard for their win in the Kentucky Derby. Two weeks later in a downpour on a sloppy track, they again persevered and won the Preakness Stakes by seven lengths. Three weeks later, American Pharoah was ready to run in the Belmont Stakes with Espinoza again in the saddle. The longest of the Triple Crown races at 1.5 miles long, the previous 37 years had seen 13 Triple Crown hopefuls fall short. Ignoring history, American Pharoah ran a seemingly effortless race, leading from the beginning and winning by 5.5 lengths. A champion of champions, American Pharoah made his own history to become the nation's 12th Triple Crown winner! American Pharoah went on to clinch the prestigious Breeder's Cup Classic in October, and earned the 2015 Eclipse Award for both Horse of the Year and Champion Three Year Old! He was also honored as the World's Best Racehorse in 2015 with a rating of 134.
