LEXINGTON, Ky. — Triple Crown champion American Pharoah is going out on top. The horse won the $5 million Breeders’ Cup Classic by 6 1/2 lengths Saturday in his final race before retirement, which means he earned a “Grand Slam.”

The 3-year-old colt ran 1 1/4 miles in a track-record 2:00.07 as the sentimental 3-5 favorite among the crowd of 50,155 at Keeneland. Fans stood 20-deep all along the rail, cheering and snapping cell phone photos of the superstar horse.
