actually, his tail looks longer and more lush (to me) than the last time I saw it - its one of his most endearing qualities - that cute little stubby tail

It's 2015, can't they get him some extensions? I hear the "Whirlaway" is fabulous.

American Pharoah has fired back at the criticism:
"Get used to it. All your favorite horses are going to be looking at it in the Derby!"

You mean he isn't unique enough with just the misspelled name?

Well, I have to admit that although I am in fact an eggzellent speller, "Pharaoh" is one of the words I always have to look up.

Of course if I'd been going to name a prize colt that, I WOULD have looked it up. :)

It is even more puzzling to me because isn't his owner of Egyptian descent? :shock: :?
Could there be an American Pharaoh already registered with the Jockey Club?

Oddly enough, the JC database lists "American Pharoah" as a Permanent name. And there isn't any horse with the correct spelling "American Pharaoh".

A misspelled name is better than what some horses get like Arrrrr or Chickendinnerwinner. lol

American Pharoah, the champion 2-year-old male of 2014, is progressing rapidly toward his first start of 2015. Saturday at Santa Anita, American Pharoah worked six furlongs in 1:12.40, the second-fastest of 30 recorded works at the distance.
Trained by Bob Baffert, American Pharoah has not raced since winning the Grade 1 FrontRunner Stakes at Santa Anita on Sept. 27. Injury kept him from a start in the Breeders' Cup Juvenile here last November.
Baffert is considering American Pharoah for the San Felipe Stakes at Santa Anita on March 7 or the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park a week later. Both races are run at 1 1-16 miles.

Can horses laugh? Because people near him swear they heard it coming from his barn. It was just after the Fountain of Youth had been run.

Bob probably trained him to.
You never heard of a horse's laugh?

Eclipse Award winner as male 2-year-old champion of 2014 American Pharoah worked six furlongs under Martin Garcia Saturday in 1:12.40, after which Bob Baffert said the son of Pioneerof the Nile would make his 3-year-old debut in the Grade II, $600,000 Rebel Stakes at a mile and a sixteenth at Oaklawn Park on March 14.
