American Pharoah

American Pharoah is the 12th 3-year-old horse to sweep all three legs of the Triple Crown, the grueling five-week stretch that includes the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes from the first Saturday in May to early June. No horse had won all three since Affirmed in 1978.
