Jockey Victor Espinoza Can’t Contain His Euphoria After Ride Of A Lifetime

…American Pharoah is the 12th horse and first since Affirmed in 1978 to win three races on different tracks at varying distances over a five-week span.

Update: 7 Things About American Pharoah and His Jewish Owner

A brawny 3-year-old colt named American Pharoah will take to the Belmont Stakes racetrack in a bid to become the first Triple Crown winner since 1978.

A win would not only rock the sports world, it would also be a triumphant stand for Ahmed Zayat, an Orthodox Jew from Egypt who has become one of the biggest forces in horse racing but has mostly tasted bitter defeat in recent years. Before American Pharoah’s victories last month, Zayat had watched horses he owned finish second in the Kentucky Derby three out of the last four years. In 2012, horses owned by Zayat finished second in each of the three Triple Crown races – the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes and the Belmont Stakes.
