American Pharoah wins Triple Crown, Belmont Stakes 2015: Why it is so important?
American Pharoah has created sensation across the world. The drought has ended and the Triple Crown that was not won in the last 37 years, has fallen to American Pharoah, one of the best and the costliest colts in the horse racing world at the moment.
Only 11 horses have been able to win the Triple Crown in more than 140 years. Nonetheless the 37-year long gap is the longest in the entire history of the game.
The 147th Belmont Stakes will be remembered for many decades to come. It was on this historic occasion when the American Pharoah sprinted and sprinted so majestically that it started looking the champion even before completing the race.
People were looking like incredulous when the 3-year-old horst started galloping ahead and beating one horse after the other. Then the lead became insurmountable as it moved ahead. At one time it was looking as if other horses were giving it space to move ahead as it was looking as the king of the occasion. American Pharoah covered the 1 1/2 mile distance in 2:26.65, besting the field by 5 1/2 lengths.
After winning the race, a visibly very excited and mesmerized jockey said, “Steady, steady, all the way aroundâ€¦I had the best feeling after when I took the first turnâ€¦You don’t even feel it when he’s going that fast, it feels like slow motionâ€. American Pharoah has finally become the first colt to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed did it in 1978. He joins the ranks of Sir Barton, Gallant Fox, Omaha, War Admiral, Whirlaway, Count Fleet, Assault , Citation, Secretariat and Seattle Slew.
After the impressive win, Bob Baffert, the coltâ€™s trainer said, â€œI didn’t know how I was going to feel; now I knowâ€¦I feel like I have a very special horse and he’s the one that won. It wasn’t me, it was the horseâ€. American Pharoah made its owner richer by as much as $800000.
