American Pharoah

Victor Espinoza celebrates as American Pharoah takes the 2015 Kentucky Derby.  Victor also won on California Chrome in 2014.

Yesterday, while at a graduation party I witness the winning of the Triple Crown by American Pharoah and his jockey Victor Espinoza. I remember the hype last year when California Chrome was slated to win the same prize, but did not. I did not hear of American Pharoah until after the Kentucky Derby. I looked around and wondered why. Another possible Triple Crown winner? The first one since 1978 to do so happened yesterday at Belmont Stakes. But, no one expected this gracious horse to win. After suffering many defeats, American Pharoah carried on and achieved what he was told wouldn’t happen. Going to show it doesn’t matter what people say, if you can dream it you can do it.
