Triple Crown winners, like Secretariat, Affirmed and Seattle Slew, are revered. This year is no different, the Millennials have taken American Pharoah as their own on his trip to win the Triple Crown.
And that means American Pharoah has his own hashtag, #HailTheTail and videos on Youtube, including an homage to his short, brushy tail. It is early to see if American Pharaoh's own millennial peers, maybe the sharp looking Frosted or dark-maned Mubtaahij, will be early-adapters of a bobbed, piecey tail for summer-into-fall racing.
For a boots-on-the-ground recap of American Pharoah's Triple Crown celebrations, watch this and regret all over again foregoing that trip to the Belmont.
