Fun facts about American Pharoah – Cool facts about Triple Crown winner American Pharoah – Pictures
August 2, 2016
When you watch the two races side by side, it’s clear Secretariat would have left his descendent in the dust on this last leg of the Triple Crown.
In fact, as impressive as American Pharoah’s Triple Crown victory was, it pales in comparison to when his great-great-great grandfather did it in 1973.
And when you tally up the times of their respective three Triple Crown races — Secretariat (1:59, 1:53, 2:24), American Pharoah (2:03, 1:58, 2:26) — Secretariat’s total margin over American Pharoah is over 11 seconds. In horse racing, that’s an enormous difference.
. American Pharoah won the Belmont Stakes by five and a half lengths (the sixth fastest time ever), but Secretariat won it by 31 lengths (the fastest time ever)
