Racing NSW chief executive Peter V’landys admitted his first thought as he watched American Pharoah from the Belmont grandstand was “what a drawcard for the Queen Elizabeth Stakes next year”.

It is unrealistic to expect American Pharoah to come to Sydney for The Championships, his future will probably be in a breeding barn at the end of the year. But that won’t stop V’landysasking the question of the owners of the biggest name in racing.
