Well they are going at it again, the company that made the hologram to bring Tupac to life that is. This time they are bringing back country legend Patsy Cline. 52 years since this country legend received her wings she will be hitting the stage once more. Patsy Cline will be the first female that this company has taken on for one of its holograms. While also holding the title of the first country star turned in to a hologram.

American Pharoah Not Done Yet


Posted by omeditors | Posted in 12th Ever Triple Crown Winner, American Pharoah | Posted on 22-06-2015

Triple Crown winner American Pharoah, his owner Ahmed Zayat, trainer Bob Baffert, and jockey Victor Espinoza are still basking in the glory of becoming only the 12th horse to win the Triple Crown and the first since 1978.

The biggest question since winning the Triple Crown for owner Ahmed Zayat is what is next for the colt. He stated that his horse will race again but when and where will be up to trainer Bob Baffert. He also went on to say that the horse will race at least three more times before he retires. The finale will most likely be the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic at Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky. Once in retirement, Purina‘s Beneful division noted that the colt will be sent to the breeding farm at Coolmore’s Ashford Stud.

Another race that you might be able to see American Pharoah at is the $1 million Haskell at Monmouth Park in New Jersey on Aug. 2. This is one of Baffert’s favorite racetracks and has won here several times. Another option is the $600,000 Jim Dandy at Saratoga in New York is Aug. 1 though no comittments have been made by either Baffert or Zayat. Zayat stated that he will not make any promises but all of those tracks are a possibility.

American Pharoah returned to California on Thursday and was greeted by many admirers, one of which was actress Julie Roberts. American Pharoah is the first racehorse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed did 37 years ago it in 1978. The colt was flown from Kentucky to California and received a police escort from the airport to Santa Anita race track. The Arcadia Police Department offered up their services with police cars and even helicopters. Trainer Bob Baffert welcomed stated that it was great to have him back in his barn in Santa Anita.

To his surprise, things have not settled down yet for anyone involved. He stated that he figured it would be similar to winning the Kentucky Derby but explained that it is not even close. June 27 at Santa Anita on the track’s Gold Cup day, American Pharoah will make an appearance but will not be racing. One possible race would be in Keeneland in Lexington, Kentucky at the Breeders’ Cup Classic. Other racetracks have been beating down Zayat’s door to try and get him to bring Pharoah to their tracks. Zayat said that nothing is set in stone at this point.

The demeanor and calmness of American Pharaoh is not typically of a racehorse, especially one that just did something that no other horse has been able to do since 1978, and that is to win the Triple Crown. Most racehorses are extremely aggressive and high strung. American Pharoah however, is not your typical racehorse. His trainer has described him as a very calm and sweet horse. American Pharoah took his parade lap in Saturday in Louisville Kentucky and just like his trainer describer, he was exactly like that. He trotted around the course cool and collected but that cannot be said for his owner Ahmed Zayat and trainer Bob Baffert. Keith Mann suggests that the two did not hold back their emotions on Saturday night at the celebration according to Twitter.

30,000 people came out to the parade to support American Pharaoh, Zayat, and Baffert on Saturday. Zayat stated that he has been on cloud nine since the Derby. Zayat , Baffert, and jockey Victor Espinoza all received trophies for the win American Pharoah got at the Derby, but all three stated that the day was all about the horse and not them.   The horse got a steady cheer from the crowd the entire time, even when he made his way back to the barn.

American Pharoah is a Wanted Racehorse


Posted by omeditors | Posted in America's Most Wanted, American Pharoah Slimmed Down | Posted on 11-06-2015

Triple Crown winner American Pharoah is a wanted horse by pretty much every racetrack in America. After winning the Triple Crown last Saturday at the Belmont Stakes for the first since Affirmed did it in 1978, trainer Bob Baffert’s phone has not stopped ringing. Editors of Wikipedia and FreedomPop users understand why every racetrack around wants Baffert to bring American Pharoah to their place.

Monmouth Park is of course in New Jersey, which holds the Haskell Invitational with a stake of $1 million on August 2nd. Saratoga is in upstate New York and hosts the $600,000 Jim Dandy Stakes. According to the Associated Press, these two locations are the most likely landing sports for American Pharoah. Baffert also stated that no plans are set in stone and that he is not making any promises because American Pharoah needs more time to recover from the grueling Triple Crown and needs to have the flexibility to change his plans.

Trainer Bob Baffert would like to see the horse put that back on before he makes any appearances because he wants him to come back firing on all cylinders. The horse is now back home in Kentucky where he will be paraded around on Saturday when the owner, trainer, and jockey receive their Kentucky Derby trophies.

Victor Espinoza, the winning jockey, has given 10% of his earnings to the City of Hope cancer research hospital for years. He earned $80,000, and all but amounts needed to pay to his agent and staff will be given to the treatment facility. City of Hope specializes in childhood cancer, but they also work to find treatments and cures for diabetes and HIV/AIDS.

Espinoza isn’t the only person who had a hand in the Triple Crown win who will be making charitable contributions with the winnings. PRNewsWire.com was informed by a Skout user that Bob Baffert, the trainer of American Pharoah, and his wife, have long supported numerous charities associated with horse racing. It’s been reported that they will give $50,000 each to Old Friends Farm, the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund, and the California Retirement Management Account.

American Star?


Posted by omeditors | Posted in Triple Crown | Posted on 08-06-2015

American Pharoah is actually misspelled, but it is so right. After 37 years, this horse finally broke the Triple Crown drought. The race is actually rigged against owners of less means. It has been heading in that direction lately because a proliferation of less than blue blood breeders. More things than simply owning a fast horse brings the Triple Crown. If the potential Triple Crown winner is owned by a common owner, the other owners simply run fresh horses in the Belmont. Sometimes if the threat is dire, they will rest a horse for the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. Flickr users pointed out that this is the beef that California Chrome’s owner so eloquently raised after Chrome was defeated in the Belmont by fresh horses that were inserted in anticipation of a commoner winning the vaunted title.

To this end, they have also increased the qualifying races that are necessary to enter the Derby. The advantage goes to those with the resources to afford medical trainers that can rest a horse better than those without the financial resources. Athletes that are a part of the best camps will receive the best trainers. Increasing the qualifying races also gives an advantage to those that are able to taxi their animals effectively.
