1949 GM Whirlaway

I always said I wanted the 12th Triple Crown winner to have a good name. Not something like Frac Daddy or Bellamy Road.

American Pharoah. He’s our American hero, and a Pharaoh was considered a god on Earth.

The misspelling doesn’t bother me. This is a good name. This is worthy of following names such as Sir Barton. Gallant Fox. Omaha. War Admiral. Whirlaway. Count Fleet. Assault. Citation. Secretariat. Seattle Slew. Affirmed.

American Pharoah.

The Calumet Colts
