Bob Baffert is widely recognized as one of the most successful trainers in the history of horse racing. He is the Triple Crown-winning trainer of American Pharoah, the first horse to win the Triple Crown in 37 Years. His horses have won four Kentucky Derbies, six Preakness Stakes, two Belmont Stakes and two Kentucky Oaks.
