NEW YORK (AP) — The Triple Crown celebration is on.

Now that American Pharoah is a Triple Crown winner, the party-planning is under way.

The 3-year-old colt is back in his barn at Belmont Park for the night, but it’s off to Louisville, Kentucky, in the morning. When he arrives at the airport, he will receive a police escort back to trainer Bob Baffert’s Barn 33.

And in the days he’s chilling out after becoming the first horse to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont since Affirmed in 1978, Churchill Downs has scheduled a celebration for June 13.

Darren Rogers, spokesman for the track that hosts the Derby, said American Pharoah will be “paraded” around the track.

It’s likely to be the first of many planned events to honor American Pharoah, who joins racing’s most select club that now has 12 members.
