American Pharaoh Wins Triple Crown

American Pharoah did it.  He became only the twelfth horse in American racing history to win the Triple Crown.  He won by 5 1/2 lengths over Frosted, with Keen Ice running third.  The first Triple Crown Champion in 37 years - and he goes back in his blood line 5 times to Hyperion - who was a direct ancestor of Northern Dancer and *Forli.  I feel good.
   In England, Golden Horn stayed undefeated - he won the Epsom Derby under jockey Frankie Detorri.
   More tomorrow….   I have to go celebrate!
