American Pharaoh wins ‘Sportsman of the Year’ award

(NEWS10) – American Pharoah earned himself even more hardware on Sunday after retiring more than a month ago.

The first Triple Crown winner in 37 years ran away with Sports Illustrated’s “Sportsman of the Year” receiving 47 percent of the vote.

He beat out eleven candidates including the World Series winning Kansas City Royals and NBA superstar Stephen Curry.

American Pharoah wrapped up his career with a win at the Breeder’s Cup on Halloween after finishing second to Keen Ice at the Travers.
