American Pharoah is a Thoroughbred racehorse who won the American Triple Crown and the Breeders’ Cup Classic in 2015.

He was the twelfth Triple Crown winner in history, and in winning all four races, became the first horse to win the Grand Slam of Thoroughbred racing. American Pharaoh won the 2015 Eclipse Award for Horse of the Year, and the 2015 Champion three-year-old. He was inducted into the American Racing Hall of Fame in 2021.

American Pharaoh was bred and owned throughout his racing career by Ahmed Zayat of Zayat Stables, trained by Bob Baffert, and was ridden in most of his races by Victor Espinoza.

American Pharoah began his 2015 campaign with wins in the Rebel Stakes and the Arkansas Derby, and went on to win the 2015 Kentucky Derby and 2015 Preakness Stakes. He also won the Triple Crown in a wire-to-wire victory at the 2015 Belmont Stakes and became the first American Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978, and the 12th in history, with his winning time being the second-fastest for a Triple Crown winner. He was next shipped to Monmouth Park and easily won the Haskell Invitational on August 2, 2015.

American Pharoah was retired to stud at the conclusion of his 2015 racing year, per the agreement between Zayat and Ashford.
