When the Belmont was over, they asked jockey Victor Espinoza, “When did you know you had the race won?” He answered, “When we made the first turn!”
I’m positive that if American Pharoah had been asked the same question, his answer would have been: “As soon as I won the Preakness!” What an athlete!!
