American Pharoah won the Triple Crown today. 37 years since the last Triple Crown winner.
I’d not yet experienced a Triple Crown winner in my lifetime…born in the decade after the Triple Crown winners of the 1970s. It’s something I’ve followed and hoped for ever since I figured out what horse racing was…Silver Charm’s bid for the Triple Crown in 1997 was the first one I remember actively following.
An extraordinary horse and an extraordinary accomplishment. History in the making.
