Whoaaaaa, Nelly thats a lot of horsing around.
Triple Crown winner American Pharoah is quite the stud.
The stud’s retired but hasn’t been put out to pasture just yet – the thoroughbred is living the life- eating, sleeping, and breeding. He pulls $200,000 per impregnation (currently breeding at an 80 percent “strike rate” and should make about $30M this year alone.
There’s no telling whether one of American Pharoah’s foals will follow in his hoof-steps to win the Grand Slam of Thoroughbred racing, but the first crop of weanlings look promising, according to Bloodhorse. “She has fantastic size, great scope with a wonderful shoulder and hip, and she just moves well,” breeder Kerry Cauthen said of the champion race horse’s first foal. “She has so much scope that you can project forward and see classic form.”
Not a bad retirement to look forward to.
