American Pharoah completes half-mile workout at Santa Anita

ARCADIA, Calif. (AP) Triple Crown winner American Pharoah completed a half-mile workout Monday at Santa Anita in preparation for his start in the Haskell Invitational next month.

The 3-year-old colt was timed in 47.60 seconds under jockey Martin Garcia, who works him in the mornings while Victor Espinoza rides him in his races.

It was American Pharoah's second workout since becoming racing's first Triple Crown winner in 37 years last month. He ran three furlongs on June 29.

Trainer Bob Baffert says the colt will have one more workout at Santa Anita this week before heading to Del Mar with the rest of Baffert's horses. The track north of San Diego opens its summer meet on July 16.

American Pharoah is set to run in the $1 million Haskell at New Jersey's Monmouth Park on Aug. 2.
