Triple Crown winner American Pharoah had an enthusiastic rooting section as he galloped Friday morning in preparation for the $1.75 million Haskell Invitational. Monmouth Park built a ''Pharoah Fan Fest'' around the colt's appearance in the race on Sunday. The first event was a free open house which drew an estimated 5,000 fans on a warm, sunny morning to watch American Pharoah prepare for his first start since the Belmont Stakes in early June.

All have chatted up either the owner, trainer or jockey of American Pharoah in the weeks after the horse became the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years with a sweep of the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes. ''He's captured the imagination of the nation,'' says Ahmed Zayat, the effusive Egyptian owner who travels the world on business and resides in Teaneck, New Jersey.
