Can American Pharoah match Whirlaway’s feat?

Email

American Pharoah keeps joining exclusive clubs. The colt became the eighth juvenile champion since the advent of the modern Eclipse Awards – and just the second since 1979 – to win the following year’s Kentucky Derby. Five weeks later, he completed his historic Triple Crown sweep, becoming just the 12th to accomplish the feat and the first in 37 years.
