He will become the world's most famous stud following today's race. American Pharoah races one last time today.

This will be his last race. There's "zero chance" the Triple Crown winner will race again after the Breeders' Cup Classic, according to Ahmed Zayat.

Hispanic jockey Victor Espinoza, who rode Pharoah for his three historic wins, will race him around the track this last time for the $5 million purse, the richest in North American racing.

Then he belongs to the ladies, as American Pharoah heads to Coolmore's Ashford Stud in Kentucky where "he's going to go to another life and be a stud and hopefully have little Pharoahs."
