People who follow the sport hoped for that one special animal who could end the constant disappointment.
Since 1978, the Triple Crown trophy — awarded to a horse that won the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont Stakes — had gone unclaimed.
“He took horse racing from the back page of the sports section to the front page of the sports section,” said trainer Doug O’Neill, who didn’t have a horse in the 2015 Triple Crown series.
When American Pharoah was charging to history last year, his human connections were colorful people: trainer Bob Baffert, owner Ahmed Zayat and jockey Victor Espinoza.
Heading into the Run for the Roses, often called “the most exciting two minutes in sports,” the hot horse is Nyquist.
O’Neill, a 47-year-old native of Dearborn, Mich., is the trainer of the California-based horse, a sleek bay colt who has won all seven of his career starts.
Uncle Mo tried 11/4 miles only once in his career, when he finished 10th in the 2011 Breeders’ Cup Classic.
When asked about the pressure that comes along with having a Derby favorite, Baffert laughed.
Nyquist — a horse owner Paul Reddam named after Gustav Nyquist, a Swedish player for the Detroit Red Wings — is coming off a dominating win in the Florida Derby, where he went to the lead and did not look back, winning by 3¼ lengths.
In the process, he vanquished Mohaymen, who had won his first five starts and was considered to be the Derby favorite.
“I think people hope for greatness,” said trainer Dale Romans, who will run Blue Grass winner Brody’s Cause in the Derby.
There were 20,000 people at Saratoga Race Course the Friday morning before the Travers Stakes to watch American Pharoah gallop around the historic grounds.
At Keeneland Race Track, the day after American Pharoah won his final start, the Breeders’ Cup Classic, Baffert brought the colt out of his stall to mingle with people on the backstretch.
NEW YORK — Sunday’s game seemed headed for a lengthy rain delay or even postponement until the Mets decided at close to the last minute to start on time during a drizzle.
“I was 20 minutes late for my pregame routine,” Bumgarner said.
Bumgarner struck out six and had to work out of a lot of trouble, the worst being the bases loaded and two outs in the sixth, facing pinch-hitter Asdrubal Cabrera in a 4-0 game.
After pitching coach Dave Righetti visited the mound to give Derek Law more time to get warm, Bumgarner struck out Cabrera on three pitches.
Bumgarner now owns the lowest ERA of any visiting pitcher at Citi Field with at least 25 innings at 0.62.
Giants shortstop Brandon Crawford wondered why Neil Walker was not ruled out and a double play called after Walker slid and did not keep a hand on the bag in the eighth inning Saturday.
Crawford also believes Walker changed his direction slightly to go after him, a move also supposedly against the new rules.
Manager Bruce Bochy appealed the “safe” call, but it was upheld.
“Before this year, I never would have thought twice about it,” Crawford said.
To me, it didn’t look like he tried to stay on the base, which is one thing you’re supposed to do.
Henry Schulman is a San Francisco Chronicle staff writer.
The Giants on Sunday stole four bases without being caught, the first time they have done so since a 14-7 victory against the Marlins in May 2012.
The Angels' stable of starting pitchers, once expected to be eight men strong, is down to half that. On Sunday, the team optioned right-hander Matt Shoemaker to triple-A Salt Lake after an unsatisfactory April, and will go without a fifth starter for the next two weeks. The Angels would not commit

Only one man could stop the Dodgers’ losing streak. Clayton Kershaw squashed the Padres with his arm and propelled the moribund lineup with his bat in a 1-0 victory over San Diego. Kershaw spun the 13th shutout of his career. He struck out 14 and scattered three singles. At the plate, he drove
