Haskell Next For American Pharoah
Triple Crown champion American Pharoah will have his next start in the US$1 million Gr1 Haskell Invitational at Monmouth Park on 2 August, reports Blood Horse. "I wanted to look at a race for him that was still running against 3-year-olds and running in a race that would be easy on him, considering the campaign he had," owner Ahmed Zayat explained. "It's all about American Pharoah. He won the Triple Crown, which is an unbelievable achievement - immortal, historic, great - and I promised myself as a fan and more importantly, [for] the racing world, that we will race him again as long as he's telling us he's a healthy and happy horse."
