“I think I’m just a lucky Mexican to win three Kentucky Derbys, and two in a row. And I’m just enjoying every moment,” Jockey Victor Espinoza said.

American Pharoah  was trained by Bob Baffert. Baffert had aso trained Pharoah’s stablemate Dortmund, who had never been beaten.

While there hasn’t been a Triple Crown winner since Affirmed in 1978, Governor Steve Beshear told BourbonBlog.com in a interview that he thinks American Pharoah could become a Triple Crown winner.
