Notes: The much-antic ipated sophomore debut of the Eclipse Award-winn ing Champion 2-Year-Old Male proved to be worth the wait when this Zayat Stables homebred simply dazzled in the G2 Rebel S. on March 14 at Oaklawn Park. Despite displacing a front show in a bobbled start, American Pharoah took six rivals gate-to-wi re on a track downgraded to sloppy and won by 6 1/4 lengths under a hand ride from Victor Espinoza. The colt crossed the wire in the 1 1/16m race in 1:45.78 and was given a 99 BRIS Speed Rating, four points lower than his career top of 103 in last year's G1 Del Mar Futurity on September 3. The Rebel was the Bob Baffert trainee's first race since September 27 when he used a similar front-runn ing style to take the G1 FrontRunne r S. at Santa Anita. The lone blemish on American Pharoah's resume came in his career debut when he finished fifth of nine as the favorite in an August 9 Del Mar maiden contest. Bred in Kentucky, the bay is by Zayat's 2009 Kentucky Derby runner-up Pioneerof the Nile and out of the Yankee Gentleman mare Littleprin cessemma. He was foaled on February 2, 2012, and currently sits at fifth on the Kentucky Derby leaderboar d with a total of 60 qualifying points. The Rebel score upped his career earnings to $811,500 and American Pharoah could top the $1 million mark in his final prep to run for the roses, which is likely to be in the G1 Arkansas Derby on April 11 at Oaklawn.
