American Pharoah Gallops for the Masses at Saratoga

What I wouldn't give to be in Saratoga tomorrow to watch the magnificent American Pharoah run yet another race for the history books.  For those lucky enough to be in New York, an estimated 15,000 watched him take his final gallop before the $1.6 million Travers Stakes runs tomorrow afternoon.  The New York Racing Association opened its gates free of charge so fans could watch this American legend train during a special session reserved for Travers entrants.

Tune your televisions to The Travers on Saturday. It's likely that he'll have only one more race, The Breeders' Cup before he is officially retired.  What an American treasure this horse has become.
