Kentucky Derby favorite American Pharoah

derby15-ampharoahspiresEven though his name is misspelled (Pharoah instead of Pharaoh) American Pharoah is a beautiful horse and very talented.  He is the favorite for this year’s Kentucky Derby and will be breaking from post position #18 on Saturday.  He is quite the ham and loves to show off for people.  When he hears cameras clicking he starts posing.  This photo was taken this morning and I though his pose with the backdrop of the Twin Spires at Churchill Downs made for a lovely image despite all the tents and corporate boxes in the infield behind him.
