We cannot seem to speak her name without mentioning another, in conjunction. American Pharoah’s little sister is proving, in her own time, to be a whole lot more than a filly with big shoes to fill.
Chasing Yesterday is now a certified G1 winner, after her victory in last Saturday’s Starlet at Los Alamitos. It wasn’t a runaway. It was, instead, a hard-fought battle down the stretch beneath jockey Drayden VanDyke.
The tenacious daughter of Tapit was not to be denied, as she powered past her rivals late in the stretch.
Perhaps it’s time we stop referring to her as “American Pharoah’s little sister.”
Perhaps… she’s a star in her own right.
