Triple Crown

Hi, Leslie!

Today a horse won the Triple Crown. The horse’s name is American Pharoah.

This is a big deal because the last time a horse won the Triple Crown was way, way, back in 1978! That’s five years before your mom was even born!

Now, horseracing isn’t really my thing, but this is special. In order to win the Triple Crown, a horse has to win three big-time races in a row. The Preakness, the Kentucky Derby, and the Belmont Stakes. American Pharoah had already won the Preakness, and the Kentucky Derby. And today, he won the Belmont Stakes.

A lot of people bet money on horseracing, so a lot of people made a lot of money!
