Triple Crown winner American Pharoah is a dad in waiting.
Coolmore’s Ashford Stud said Friday that Untouched Talent is in foal to American Pharoah. The announcement comes two weeks after the 12-year-old mare became the lucky first lady to be bred to racing’s first Triple Crown winner in 37 years.
A tweet sent by Coolmore says “It’s very early days but we’re happy to confirm Untouched Talent (dam of Bodemeister) is in foal to American Pharoah.”
If all goes well, the first of many baby Pharoahs is about 11 months away.
American Pharoah won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes to become the 12th Triple Crown champion, and closed his racing career with a win in the Breeders’ Cup Classic. He was retired after the race, and stands at Ashford Stud in Versailles, Kentucky, with a $200,000 stud fee.
