DEL MAR, Calif. (AP) Triple Crown winner American Pharoah completed a half-mile workout at Del Mar in his last formal exercise before the Haskell Invitational this weekend.

The colt was timed in 48.80 seconds Tuesday under jockey Martin Garcia, who rides him in the mornings. Victor Espinoza rides him in races.

American Pharoah will ship to New Jersey on Wednesday in preparation for Sunday's $1 million race at Monmouth Park.

Trainer Bob Baffert was pleased with the workout, which Garcia says was ''smooth and easy.''

The colt will return to Del Mar either Monday or Tuesday.
