With the 2015 Kentucky Derby and Preakness champion, American Pharoah, one win away from winning the Triple Crown, The Jockey Club’s “America’s Best Racing” has released a spoof music video “It’s All About the Tail,” highlighting the racehorse with an inordinately short tail.

Why the short tail? As legend goes, it was nibbled off by pasturemates at McKathan Brothers Farm near Ocala, Florida, where American Pharoah resided as a 2-year-old.

The Triple Crown is the most difficult trophy to capture in all of sports. It has happened on only 11 occasions, with the last time occurring in 1978. Despite the prodigious odds, the annual quest to capture this coveted crown attracts the hearts and minds of Americans from coast to coast. To date, more than 24 million people have tuned in to NBC Sports’ coverage of the first two legs of the 2014 Triple Crown. With American Pharoah having the opportunity to end the 37-year streak since the last Triple Crown, an expected audience of more than 20 million viewers will likely be tuning in to watch the Belmont Stakes on June 6.

Will we witness it in 2015 with American Pharoah? Tune in to NBC Sports, which will provide live coverage of American Pharoah’s quest to win the Triple Crown on Saturday, June 6.
