    Triple Crown Winner - American Pharoah
    Prior to last week, we'd never even considered releasing "hot market" product for a horse race. We released some cool collectibles that include betting slips, track dirt from Belmont, Churchill Downs and Pimlico, and jockey autographs and they have been selling really well. Whodathunkit?

    I would have said that American Pharoah totally outclassed a poor field, but his time was the third fastest ever for the Belmont Stakes, so he really deserves all the accolades as one of the best ever. In recent years, seldom has any winner of a Triple Crown race kept racing, but apparently he will and it will be very interesting to see what he can do in future races.

    (I will have to check out that racing stuff.)

    I have some buddies that are into racing and they said they thought the jockey was holding him back waiting for a challenge and it didn't really show up... finally let him loose on the home stretch when he opened it up. That horse looked like it was out for a casual job on the first 3/4 of that race while the others were going all out to keep up.

    I agree - in a race that long, even a very strong front-runner cannot go all out for the full 1-1/2 miles. I'm sure Espinoza thought there would be a late rush from Materiality and maybe from Frosted, but that never happened and AP breezed through the finish.

    We've been pleasantly surprised with how well the collectibles and memorabilia have been selling. We've never really "hot marketed" a horse race before, so it's nice to see sales pretty strong. I was curious to see what we came up with product-wise and it looks like a selection of Espinoza autographed pics and some cool "race used" collectibles like betting slips, track dirt, etc.
