American Pharaoh, Jewish Owner

Odds And Ends

When American Pharaoh won the Triple Crown of thoroughbred horse racing in June 2105, it ended a 37 year dry spell.  The last horse to capture the esteemed cahmpionship of the track was Affirmed in 1978.  American Pharaoh is owned by Ahmed Zayat, an Egyptian born Jew who made his fortune in the United States.
