American Pharoah one of 50 most influential Jews

Post by lilyw »

While the story makes some type of sense - it does give us a great headline

Spoiler: show
American Pharoah named to Forward 50 list of 2015's most influential Jews




Triple Crown champion named to annual list of influential Jews

Triple Crown champion. Breeders’ Cup Classic winner. Jewish icon.

American Pharoah has been named to the Jewish Daily Forward’s annual Forward 50 list of notable and newsworthy Jews.

The bay colt, who in June became the first thoroughbred in 37 years to win the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes, was honored by the 118-year-old newspaper in a nod to Egyptian-born owner Ahmed Zayat, the Yeshiva University graduate and Orthodox Jew whose largesse and philanthropic efforts for Jewish causes is well documented.
