Thanks for posting this Msmadz! This is such a rare occurrence that I think we should honour the shared accomplishments of both the horse "American Pharoah" and the jockey, Victor Espinoza.
Well done!
I was working while this historic race was taking place, but I enjoyed the replay.
Also, doesn't the horse owner Bob Baffert look like the pro wrestler Ric Flair?! I halfway expected Mr. Baffert to tilt his head back and holler "WOOO!", just like his lookalike!

What was it, 37 years or something since the last time? Might not happen again in my lifetime.

Grats, pony, now go out and stud.

Yeah, that's the life.

Congrats to the horse and his owner, but that's about as much excitement as I can muster for anything involving horse racing.
