    American Pharoah wins Triple Crown

    Unless what I just watched was somehow wrong, there apparently is now a winner of the triple crown for the first time in..decades?

    So far no news articles up according to a google search.

    Edit: And I misspelled Pharoah..../facepalm

    Edit 2: http://www.courier-journal.com/story...rown/28615763/

    American Pharoah wins Belmont, takes Triple Crown

    There was no heartbreak this time.

    After 37 years, American Pharoah made a feat 13 others failed to accomplish since 1978 look easy, cruising to a Belmont Stakes win and Triple Crown sweep on Saturday in front of a boisterous crowd in New York....

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Congrats to a wonderful animal, by far the best today, and a true champion. As a horse racing fan for decades of my life, it's nice to see such a super horse run a super race leaving no doubt he deserves the honours. The way he pulled away in the stretch reminded me of Secretariat's dominance.

    Hope he gets a nice long rest on the farm and comes back for the fall racing season.

    Horse racing is stupid and mafia laden.

    Greetings, CJ.

    CJ, you should have heard me hollering from the time the race started till it was won - I'm surprised the neighbors didn't report me for disturbing the peace! : Yippee! I'm going to have to get a Cleopatra haircut on Monday- straight bangs and all - in remembrance of American Pharoah winning the Triple Crown so decisively! What a beautiful animal! P.S. I didn't have any money bet on this one!

    Re: American Pharoah wins Triple Crown

    The last time I witnessed a horse win the triple crown, I was 11 years old. The following year, Spectacular Bid narrowly failed to become the 4th horse in 7 years to win the TC in the 70s. Back then I thought it was too easy... LOL. Cue 37 years later, and we have our 12th winner. Amazing. I was doubtful AP had the class to win, but he proved me wrong.
    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    Re: American Pharoah wins Triple Crown

    The weird thing is, I'm not really that much of a horse racing fan, but it just so happens that a co-worker was watching it, and I realized a triple crown was possible...

    American Pharoah was basically in the lead the entire time and only got further ahead. The other horses weren't even close at the end.
