Triple Crown Champ American Pharoah Arrives in New Jersey

Triple Crown Champ American Pharoah Arrives in New JerseyTriple Crown winner American Pharoah received star treatment as he arrived to prepare for the $1.75 million Haskell Invitational on Sunday at Monmouth Park.After landing at Atlantic City airport, racing’s biggest attraction was led off the plane, then escorted by New Jersey State troopers for the final leg of the journey. The van he was loaded into was decked out like Taylor Swift’s tour bus with his name splashed across the side.
A cluster of reporters awaited him when the van pulled into the Monmouth barn area shortly after 4 p.m.
As usual, American Pharoah was cool and collected, even on a blazingly hot afternoon on the Jersey Shore. He calmly stepped off the van, took two short turns outside the barn where he will reside through the race before heading into the shade for a bath and a nap.
It was the end of a long day that started at 1:30 a.m. at trainer Bob Baffert’s barn at Del Mar where the colt was loaded onto a van for the trip to the airport in Ontario, California for the flight east. The plane made one stop in Kentucky before continuing to New Jersey.
