ABR Releases Music Video “It’s All About the Tail” to Promote American Pharoah’s Triple Crown Quest

With the 2015 Kentucky Derby and Preakness champion, American Pharoah, one win away from winning the Triple Crown, America’s Best Racing (ABR), a multi-media fan development and awareness-building platform initiated by The Jockey Club, today released a spoof music video “It’s All About the Tail” highlighting the racehorse with an inordinately short tail.

You can view the music video here:

Why the short tail? As legend goes, it was nibbled off by pasture mates at McKathan Brothers Farm near Ocala, Fla., where American Pharoah resided as a 2-year-old. American Pharoah boasts a career record of six wins in seven starts and has earned $3,730,300.

The Triple Crown is the most difficult trophy to capture in all of sports. It has happened on only 11 occasions, with the last time occurring in 1978. A 3-year-old Thoroughbred must win three races — Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes, each at a different distance — over the span of five weeks. Despite the prodigious odds, the annual quest to capture this coveted crown attracts the hearts and minds of Americans from coast to coast. To date, more than 24 million people have tuned in to NBC Sports’ coverage of the first two legs of the 2014 Triple Crown.  With American Pharoah having the opportunity to end the 37-year streak since the last Triple Crown, an expected audience of more than 20 million viewers will likely be tuning in to NBC Sports to watch the Belmont Stakes on June 6. 

Will we witness it in 2015 with American Pharoah? Stay tuned to for the latest updates, news, blogs, photos, gambling insights, and party tips and tune in to NBC Sports, which will provide live coverage of American Pharoah’s quest to win the Triple Crown on Saturday, June 6.
