AMERICAN PHAROAH'S HISTORIC CROWN THROUGH THE LENS OF LIZZI


AMERICAN PHAROAH'S HISTORIC CROWN THROUGH THE LENS OF LIZZI
BY FRANK DRUCKER, Publicity Director, Empire City @ Yonkers Raceway

YONKERS, NY, Saturday, June 6, 2015-While American Pharoah hasn't visited Yonkers Raceway--yet--Yonkers Raceway visited American Pharoah.

Well, not technically. However, Yonkers' crack track photographer, Mike Lizzi, was at Belmont Park Saturday (clearly, NYRA has to tighten up its lax credential requirements) as "Pharoah" ended the 37-year-old drought and became thoroughbred racing's 12th Triple Crown winner."
“Incredible race," Lizzi said. "I'm glad to have witnessed it." What accompanies are a handful of Lizzi's pictures, with more to come in the coming days.

A reminder that the Raceway remains on hiatus for live racing and evening simulcasting until next Saturday, June 13. Afternoon simulcasting continues daily.
