Triple Crown winner American Pharoah received a hero’s welcome in his return to the Churchill Downs paddock. A crowd of about 30,000 gathered at Downs After Dark on June 13, 2015, all in hopes of catching a glimpse of horse racing’s star.
The only thing missing from the parade and paddock show? A rendition of “Enter Sandman” as he walked through the tunnel to cheers of “Phar-oah! Phar-oah!”
