Publisher's Summary

History was made at the 2015 Belmont Stakes when American Pharoah won the Triple Crown, the first since Affirmed in 1978. As magnificent as the champion is, the team behind him has been all too human while on the road to immortality.

Written by an award-winning The New York Times sportswriter, American Pharoah is the definitive account not only of how the ethereal colt won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness, and Belmont Stakes, but how he changed lives.

Through extensive interviews, Drape explores the making of an exceptional racehorse, chronicling key events en route to history. Covering everything from the flamboyant owner's successful track record, the jockey's earlier heartbreaking losses, and the Hall of Fame trainer's intensity, Drape paints a stirring portrait of a horse for the ages and the people around him.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    Reliving American Pharoah's journey to the Triple Crown


    Any additional comments?

    It was thorough, if sometimes a little confusing, coverage of all of the main players in a great moment in racing history. I would have liked to have heard more about American Pharoah and less about the people around him, but I guess that the horse hasn't been giving interviews. :)

    "American Pharoah"

    I am a horse racing fan and supporter and have been for many years. I thought this story was very well presented . What better subject for a fan than a " triple crown "winner and great racehorse! I would highly recommend this book to anyone that appreciates the "sport of kings!"
