Fans grateful for a glimpse of Triple Crown winner at Monmouth Park


STEPHEN EDELSON
COMMENTARY
OCEANPORT The glimpses were
fleeting but no one seemed to mind,
with cellphones and tablets documenting the brief encounters with American
Pharoah in and around the paddock
Friday afternoon.
Hours earlier, as the sun was just
beginning to heat the morning air, a
similar scene played out with thousands of fans pouring into the grandstand to see the Triple Crown winner gallop one time around the track.

with which he seemed to do it. Or both.
Whats clear is that American Pharoah is the
peoples horse
Hes the reason Monmouth Parks been energized by fans of all ages, with a record crowd that
could top 60,000 expected for Sundays $1.75-million William Hill Haskell Invitational.
And on Friday they showed up simply to be near
greatness.
