American Pharaoh



In 1889 the lease on the house was taken on by Arthur Gustave Ravoux who transformed the business into an inn popular with the artistic community in Auvers. During Van Gogh’s stay, the rooms were all occupied by Dutch and American painters. The Cuban artist Nicolás Martínez de Valdivielso, who lived nearby, took his meals at the auberge with Van Gogh.[4]
Van Gogh arrived in Auvers-sur-Oise on 20 May 1890. He had spent a year in a convalescent home in Saint-Rémy-de-Provence and wanted to settle in the North, closer to Paris. Camille Pissarro, a friend of Van Gogh's, suggested that he go to Auvers-sur-Oise where Dr Gachet lived



Bob Baffert..Most of the serious horsemen on the scene remained silent and/or awestruck, consistent with a conclusion reached 100 years ago by Arthur Conan Doyle: "Mediocrity knows nothing higher than itself, but talent instantly recognizes genius."
Though American Pharoah will attempt to become racing's first Triple Crown winner since 1978 in Saturday's Belmont Stakes, signs of his superiority were apparent long before he won the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness. To have seen him on that misty morning in Florida was to imagine many memorable afternoons at the racetrack.
"When we first saw him, everybody saw what an efficient mover he was, just no wasted effort," trainer Dale Romans said. "I thought at the time he stood out more than any 2-year-old I'd ever seen. Everybody knew we were watching a great horse."
