American Pharoah's on his way back to Del Mar

Triple Crown champion American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) left Monmouth Park the morning after his smashing victory in Sunday's Haskell Invitational (G1), bound for trainer Bob Baffert's Del Mar base.

Exercise rider Jorge Alvarez commented on what makes American Pharoah special.

In another Haskell postscript, trainer Rick Violette reports that third-placer Upstart (Flatter) is bound for the Travers (G1) August 29 at Saratoga.

American Pharoah sails home an easy Haskell winner

Triple Crown champion American Pharoah (Pioneerof the Nile) added yet another easy win to his resume when galloping home under restraint from jockey Victor Espinoza to take the Haskell Invitational (G1) at Monmouth Park on Sunday. The win gave trainer Bob Baffert his eighth Haskell score.

American Pharoah broke on top in the 1 1/8-mile contest, but settled into a stalking spot just off Competitive Edge's (Super Saver) flank when that one slipped through to his inside. The popular bay colt's smooth stride carried him effortlessly around the track and on past Competitive Edge upon hitting the turn.

At first the Zayat Stables homebred opened up in the lane, completely under his own power, before Espinoza took a hold and began gearing him down. That allowed Keen Ice (Curlin) to close the gap in second, with Upstart (Flatter) and Competitive Edge (Super Saver) following in third and fourth, respectively.
