Analysis: There is no doubting that if this guy is (and can stay) 100% healthy that he is in a class all by himself.  American Pharoah dominated his rivals in two straight Grade 1 races at the age of two, and the horses he beat in those races have come back to do great things.  He recorded his first timed workout since the injury this week, and is on target for his 2015 debut in the Rebel Stakes at Oaklawn Park.
