American Pharoah fans looking to make the trip to Saratoga Springs, N.Y., for his anticipated Racing Hall of Fame induction will have some time to make those plans.
Citing unresolved investigations in New York and Kentucky of Steve Asmussen following a 2014 video from an animal rights group alleging horse abuse, the trainer will not be considered in 2015 for the Hall of Fame.
The Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Police Department is investigating the theft of five valuable trophies from the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame the night of Sept. 12.
The 2013 class of Hall of Fame inductees will be announced exclusively over Horse Racing Radio Network Friday, April 26, at 3 p.m. EDT.
