Zayat Stables’ American Pharoah Wins Triple Crown

The sight of American Pharoah galloping away from the pack and towards history was majestic. Every hoof print in the ground, every yell from jockey Victor Espinoza, every thunderous roar from the crowd at Belmont Park – each of those noises pales in comparison to the deafening stamp American Pharoah left on horse racing history.

American Pharoah is just the twelfth horse in horse racing’s illustrious history to capture the elusive Triple Crown – winning the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes in the same season. He became the first horse to win the Triple Crown since Affirmed in 1978. The trio of Secretariat, Seattle Slew and Affirmed each captured the Triple Crown in a six-year span (1973-1978); it had been 37 long years since another horse attained the prize.

As American Pharoah and his jockey Victor Espinoza crossed the finish line at Belmont Park, 5 1/2 lengths ahead of the runner-up, fans rejoiced. Some jumped in the air, some screamed, and some even wept.

No man in that crowd was happier than Ahmed Zayat, owner of Zayat Stables and Triple Crown winner American Pharoah. The horse was home bred by Zayat Stables, which made the victory even more satisfying and emotional for Ahmed and his family. (Perhaps you saw racing manager Justin Zayat, Ahmed’s son, on national television being interviewed after the victory!)

Ahmed Zayat is a client of Peter Salerno Inc., the most award-winning custom kitchen and bath design firm in North America. As such, Peter Salerno, his family and work family are elated at the success of Ahmed, the Zayat family, and American Pharoah. It is a joy and honor for Peter to congratulate the Zayat family on their Triple Crown victory, and their place in horse racing royalty.

Congratulations to Ahmed Zayat and Zayat Stables!

American Pharoah has won the first two legs of the 2015 Triple Crown – the Kentucky Derby and the 140th Preakness Stakes. With those two wins, this remarkable horse is poised to become the first racehorse since Affirmed in 1978 to win the coveted Triple Crown.

But how did American Pharoah become the championship racehorse he is today? It’s more than just pedigree and natural talent. A team of owners, handlers, trainers (led by the legendary Bob Baffert) and gifted jockey Victor Espinoza has guided American Pharoah to this point.

Before any of that, the life and career of American Pharoah all started at Zayat Stables under the care and guidance of Ahmed Zayat. According to their official website, “From 2005 to 2015, Zayat Stables has ranked among the top five owners in North America seven times, including #1 in 2008 and 2015; athey have also been leading owner at some of North America’s most prestigious race meets, including Del Mar and Saratoga. Zayat Stables was honored to win their first Eclipse Award in 2014 and first Classic races in 2015, with homebred champion American Pharoah.”
