After thrilling 28,968 adoring fans with a parade over Churchill Downs' track and trips to the paddock and winner's circle on Saturday night, Triple Crown champ American Pharoah got a day of rest and relaxation Sunday.

“He just walked this morning,” assistant trainer Jimmy Barnes said. “He got a day off today. It was a long night for him, and there's nothing pressing right now.”

Barnes said that the Zayat Stables' homebred son of Pioneer of the Nile would resume galloping Monday and continue to do so through Wednesday before returning to Hall of Fame trainer Bob Baffert's base in Southern California on Thursday morning.
