Description
Shelley Mickle tells the story of the beloved horse, American Pharoah, from birth to his historic achievement of becoming the twelfth Triple Crown winner. He was an unlikely winner with a misspelled name, a chewed-off tail, and a horse who had to wear earplugs when he raced. When American Pharoah won the American Triple Crown and the Breeders' Cup Classic in 2015 he became the first horse to win the "Grand Slam" of American horse racing, by winning all four races. His story captured American's imagination, and this inspired account will also feature the handlers who saw his promise: owner, Ahmed Zayat of Zayat Stables, trainer Bob Baffert, and jockey Victor Espinoza.
