American Pharoah Breezes Four Furlongs

In his second workout since winning the Belmont Stakes (gr. I) to complete a sweep of the Triple Crown, the amazing American Pharoah breezed four furlongs at Santa Anita Park on the morning of July 6th.

Trained by Bob Baffert, the son of Pioneerof the Nile went the distance in a sharp :47 3/5 seconds, the fifth-fastest of 39 morning workouts at that distance. One week earlier, American Pharoah had gone three furlongs in :36 2/5.

The Triple Crown champion is scheduled to make his next start in the August 2nd Haskell Invitational (gr. I) at Monmouth Park.
