American Pharoah wins Triple Crown
United Puett's first blog is here. June 6, 2015 was an amazing day for Horse Racing. Last year the Triple Crown hype grew very large because of California Chrome. In 2014, I think everyone just wanted to witness a triple crown since it had been so long since Affirmed did it in 1978. California Chrome is an amazing horse, but just couldn't pull it off. Some blamed overtraining, others the schedule of the triple crown, but at the end of the day he just wasn't good enough. So 2015 arrives and here we go again with another California horse that may be a superstar. I knew American Pharoah was different than California Chrome, the way he trained, his galloping stride that looked effortless, this horse seemed very special. Nobody wanted to jinx it or talk about it, well I talked about it, ha! When I told friends that this horse was winning the Triple Crown this year, most laughed. Watching American Pharoah's journey from Derby to this beautiful sunny day at Belmont was spectacular. When so many kept doubting him as he approached the next legs of the crown, he kept proving everyone wrong. I was lucky to experience this day with friends, family and my future wife and it will be a memory that will last forever. American Pharoah, United Puett thanks you and I thank you. We can't wait see what you do the rest of 2015 racing season.
