American Pharoah: The $20 million 'pet' - CNBC
"...Behind that humbleness, however, is a horse who seems intent on winning, whatever the race and whatever conditions. Aside from his famously efficient and graceful movement, Pharoah genuinely enjoys running and racing, Zayat said.Still, history is not on Pharoah's side. The last horse to win the Triple Crown was in 1978, and 13 horses have won the Derby and Preakness but came up short in the Belmont...." see full article

To win Belmont, American Pharoah will have to beat fresh horses -
"...What makes many think that Pharoah can achieve the distance (a distance that few American racehorses will run in their lifetime) is his stride, which is both light and powerful. The way he drives his hind legs up underneath him, and them stretches out in front, says Pletcher, is something you only see in really great horses. There are multiple factors that enable a horse or any living creature to run fast for a extended period of time (the Belmont will take nearly two-and-a-half minutes). One of those factors is aerobic capacity, but another is efficiency of movement. American Pharoah moves with breathtaking efficiency. His stride is swift and fluid, low to the earth and powerful, with minimal time spent in the air. Human comparisons: Olympic sprinter Michael Johnson ran like this, as did Jesse Owens...." see full article

How to Bet the Belmont: Handicapping American Pharoah - Forbes
"...American Pharoah faces a few really complex issues at Belmont on June 6, not the least of which is that he has won two grueling races in the past few weeks, which take their inevitable toll. Accordingly, at this juncture, we rang up the Bluegrass Wise Man , a most gifted, thoughtful Kentucky native and racing owner who has given us sterling analysis over the last few glorious weeks of the Triple Crown. He is in Kentucky now. Full disclosure: No horses from his syndicate have run or are running in any of this year's Triple Crown races...." see full article

American Pharoah's Furlong Advantage? - Horse Racing Nation (blog)
"...American Pharoah's 37 total furlongs this year suggests that he should still be able to fire come next Saturday. Add that number to the fact that he faced no opposition during that Preakness stretch run, I think he should have the perfect amount of gas left in the tank. Others will be entered with full tanks as well, but not quite the horsepower of Pharoah. Just one more angle that gets me even more excited for this race!..." see full article

American Pharoah Will Run Against History at Belmont - New York Times

"...Affirmed, Seattle Slew and Secretariat were all based in New York and trained at Belmont Park, and so they were familiar with its sandy surface and expansive turns. American Pharoah has been based in California for most of his career, but Baffert makes Churchill Downs his base during the Triple Crown. The colt will return there Monday. The plan for now is that he will remain there until the Wednesday before Belmont, which takes place June 6...." see full article

Will Triple Crown fit American Pharoah, or will the Belmont stop him? -
"...Sooner or later, something has to give. Thirteen horses -- unlucky 13? -- have failed to win the Triple Crown. At this point, the odds have to be in the favor of a 12th TC winner. It isn't logic, but some of the losses by horses that have failed in the Belmont have defied any and all sense...." see full article

Belmont presents Triple Crown challenge for American Pharoah - Boston Globe (subscription)
"...Maybe American Pharoah finally will be the one to win all three. But he'll likely need to overcome stern challengers who skipped the Preakness and will be primed to spring another Belmont upset in New York...." see full article

The one reason American Pharoah can win the Triple Crown - USA TODAY

Marc Malusis: Horce racing needs an American Pharoah win at Belmont -
"...Can he do it? American Pharoah has already shown you that he is at the top of the 3-year-old class. So he CAN do it. Will he? Not so sure about that. His final times in the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness were rather pedestrian. His final time in the Preakness was really slow, finishing the race in 1:58.46. He relishes the slop as he showed in the Rebel Stakes in Arkansas so the conditions Saturday aided him. ..." see full article

'Pharoah' finds next level - ESPN

"...And here's the other reason American Pharoah could very well become the 12th Triple Crown winner: He's as responsive as a sports car, capable of immediate acceleration and equally capable of relaxing. That talent was on display in the 140th Preakness...." see full article

American Pharoah wins rainy Preakness, keeping Triple Crown bid alive -
"...But the Belmont is a more complicated hurdle. Start with the fact these horses are neither used to running 11/2 miles nor to racing three times in five weeks. Then consider the cavalcade of refreshed contenders American Pharoah will likely face, including Todd Pletcher's duo of Carpe Diem and Materiality and Kiaran McLaughlin's Frosted, who finished fourth in the Derby. ..." see full article
