Yep! American Pharoah lived up to the favouritism in the Kentucky Derby just as Gleneagles did earlier in the 2,000 Guineas! American Pharoah, son of 2009 Kentucky Derby runner-up Pioneerof The Nile, gave breeder/owner Zayat Stables their first Derby, jockey Victor Espinoza his third (and second consecutive) and trainer Bob Baffert his fourth. 2 May 2015.
Firing Line and Gary Stevens (pink cap) finished second, the winner’s stable companion Dortmund and Martin Garcia (dark blue cap) third, Godolphin’s adorable Frosted and Joel Rosario fourth. My lovely Mubtaahij baby and Christophe Soumillon finished eighth. Full result here.
