    Beach racing in Spain

    There ́s sun, sea, sand and… seven horses galloping flat
    out along the beach, the biggest prize of the year at stake, with seagulls scattering as the field passes the furlong marker. Before the winner has stopped to a walk, before the book- makers have paid out, the crowd streams back into the ocean for a final dip as the last of the heat leaves the day.
    Welcome to racing at Sanlucar.

    He did it!

    For 37 years horse racing fans have waited. Sometimes patiently, sometimes not. On June 6, all of that was forgotten as a talented bay colt with a misspelled name and comically short tail went to the front of the 1 ½-mile contest and never looked back. With his victory, American Pharoah became the 12th Triple Crown winner and the first since Affirmed in 1978.
