Haha yeah, I know - that was more of a personal preference thing. I'll always swoon over a Secretariat-esque neck :P

What's the timeline on getting his official stud shot? I think he's a nicely balanced animal but I'd love to see how Ashford sets him up, as I generally think they do very well with their stud shots. Will they wait until next year or does he get one mid-season?
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

I sure hope his babies have his talent, but I keep thinking how much of a hot commodity the slower ones will be in second careers if they have his sweet personality.

Unlikely to be a quote you will find in the Ashford marketing brochure.

I did read a long thread on a general horse forum full of sport horse types trying to figure out how long it would be until they could get horses by him at an affordable price. :D They were taken by his movement and temperament.

While they are waiting they can make inquiries about Coz.
I ran marathons. I saw the Taj Mahal by Moonlight. I drove Highway 1 in a convertible. I petted Zenyatta.

LOL, how long do you figure before he see him at stud in Florida or California? ;)

They failed to mention that Cairo Prince also got a lot of interest last season and that he probably will get even more of a boost as well, offering an interesting alternative for that sire line.

I went to see him a few months ago, and for 2015 they put a cap on his book at 150. Apparently they were already getting that same level of interest for 2016, and that was mid-October.

:lol: at the outtakes. Pharoah takes it all in stride. He's such a good guy.

I've been privileged to see Secretariat, Slew, Affirmed and now Pharoah, in addition to most of the greats since Kelso. Not bad for the lifetime of a person who was born horse crazy.

With a hat-tip to The Beatles...

Yes that was what I had heard. I commented in the breeding section about the hike in price and someone explained he had gotten a lot of interest in 2015, I'm not surprised. (I'm definitely interested in seeing what kind of things he will produce, he has such a nice pedigree I would love to see him do well).

American Pharoah is the 2015 Kentucky Sportsman of the Year
Highlights
Triple Crown winner the first horse to win 35-year-old award
Sets new Sportsman records for first-place votes, margin of victory
American Pharoah was born at Stockplace Farm in Lexington
From a record 163 votes cast by media members from across Kentucky, American Pharoah was named on 150 ballots and received a whopping 141 first-place votes.

Both are Sportsman of the Year records, as is American Pharoah’s 897-point victory margin over the runner-up, Kentucky Wildcats men’s basketball coach John Calipari.

Zayat Stables just named American Pharoah's 2-year-old full sister, which they own 100% of, American Cleopatra.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.
