American Pharoah roars off to a sloppy win in the GII Rebel Stakes – Results and Replay

(American Pharoah) at the rail here – slopping home the easy winner of today’s GII Rebel Stakes at soggy Oaklawn Park!

American Pharoah, took charge early here today at Oaklawn, setting easy early factions over a soupy Oaklawn main, then rolled away from his 6 foes at the top of the stretch to a 6 1/4 lengths, wire to wire win in the $750,000, GII Rebel Stakes, for 3yos at 1 1/16 mile and claiming the 50 Derby Points for winning, a sure-fire Derby 141 gate and probable early favorite status for the May 2nd, GI Kentucky Derby!

Way back for 2nd was Madefromlucky, with Bold Conquest hanging tough for 3rd and The Truth Or Else rolling up late for 4th!
