Coolmore have purchased the breeding rights to dual classic winner American Pharoah and he will stand at Ashford Stud on his retirement from racing. He will continue to race in the colours of Zayat Stables who own 100% of the horse’s racing rights.
“Whatever happens in the Belmont, American Pharoah is an outstanding sire prospect and we’re very grateful to the Zayat family for entrusting us with his stallion career,” said Ashford Stud Manager Dermot Ryan. “He’s already a champion two-year-old and has won his first four starts at three by over 20 lengths. It’s very exciting to think about how much more he might achieve.”
