The National Museum of Racing in Saratoga Springs, NY has just announced that American Pharoah will be among its 2021 inductees into their Racing Hall of Fame! This comes as no surprise after the bay stallion broke the Triple Crown's longest-ever losing streak of 37 years when he clenched the win in the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and Belmont Stakes in the summer of 2015.
The ceremony for the Hall of Fame's 2021 and 2020 inductees will be livestreamed on the National Museum of Racing's website on Friday, August 6th at 10:30 AM EDT. American Pharoah will join other Breyer portrait horses in the Hall of Fame, including Zenyatta, Rachel Alexandra, and Lonesome Glory.
American Pharoah was honored with multiple Breyer portrait models in late 2015 after his momentous wins. His new Hall of Fame status makes these pieces even more of a treasure for Breyer and racing fans alike!
