Mike Penna On American Pharaoh’s Triple Crown Chances

Mike Penna Talks American Pharaoh After His Kentucky Derby Win

Mike Penna

Mike Penna of HRRN was with Tom Veit today to talk about American Pharaoh’s close win in the Kentucky Derby & his chances at taking the Triple Crown.

Victor Espinoza

After you win The Derby the next question is, Triple Crown. Does this horse have what it takes to make it through the next 2 races?

“Well this horse has only been beaten that one time. This was a race that really tested him. Every one of his races has been won by open length… Nobody’s been close to him and all of a sudden he comes here and gets a bit of a test from Firing Line who fought his heart out. So assuming this doesn’t take too much out of him and he can rebound in a relatively short amount of time, he’s back to being the same American Pharaoh we saw going into the Kentucky Derby and it will be very difficult for any of these horses to turn the tables on him.”
