AP wins AP

Earlier this week, Associated Press named American Pharoah’s historic Triple Crown sweep the “Sports Story of the Year” as determined by a vote of member editors and news directors.

“Recognition of American Pharoah by the Associated Press as the Sports Story of the Year is a true reflection of the most compelling sports story from 2015,” said Alex Waldrop, President & CEO, National Thoroughbred Racing Association.  “Throughout American Pharoah’s quest for a Triple Crown sweep that many believed impossible, and then with the completion of our sport’s first-ever Grand Slam, American Pharoah captivated a nation. It took 37 years to crown Thoroughbred racing’s twelfth Triple Crown winner, but American Pharoah proved to be worth the wait in every way.”
