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.
