The 142nd Kentucky Derby will be run on Saturday at Churchill Downs at 6:34 p.m. ET. This comes a year since American Pharoah became the first horse to sweep the Triple Crown in 37 years. American Pharoah doesn’t race anymore, but he is staying busy in his retirement. Real, real busy.
American Pharoah’s new residence is the Coolmore Ashford Stud, a 2,000-acre estate in the heart of Bluegrass country. The manor is “home of the finest stallions in North America” including AP.
You see, everyone wants American Pharaoh’s champion seed and are willing to pay big bucks for it. How much you ask? He commands a stud fee of $200,000. Yup, while you couldn’t pay someone to take your baby batter, horse racing aficionados are eagerly lining up to get American Pharoah’s prizewinning jizz.
The victorious horse that won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes now spends his days breeding. The breeding season started in mid-February and will end in June. In that time, the Triple Crown winner will make sweet horse love to 175 mares. For the chance to have your lady horse get mounted by American Pharaoh it will set you back a cool $200,000. So that means in four months, American Pharoah will make $35 million for fucking. Good gig if you can get it. In his racing career, Pharoah earned $8.6 million.
American Pharoah, just the 12th Triple Crown winner in history, is doing a fantastic job in his new fucking role. “He’s a pro in the breeding shed,” stallion manager Richard Barry said. “Everything has gone smoothly.”
“He’s a champ, so nice. The girls love him,” owner Ahmed Zayat said. “He’s as fertile as you can get at this point. Up to now, we’ve bred nine and they are all in foal, all pregnant. He’s enjoying life. His condition is unreal and his coat shines.” I’d be enjoying life too if I was getting paid $200,000 to bang.
