HOT SPRINGS, Ark. – The champion American Pharoah arrived Wednesday at Oaklawn Park and not long afterward drew post 6 in a field of eight for the Grade 1, $1 million Arkansas Derby. He was installed as the 1-2 morning-line favorite for Saturday’s race following his dominant win in last month’s Grade 2, $750,000 Rebel Stakes.
