American Pharoah was a success on the track and the Louisville Courier-Journal reports he is off to a rousing start as a stallion.

It appears as though the 2015 Triple Crown winner, who has been retired to a life of breeding at Coolmore Ashford Stud in Kentucky, has scored once again.

Via the Courier-Journal:

Coolmore’s Ashford Stud reported Friday Untouched Talent, dam of Bodemeister, is in foal to the Triple Crown and Breeders’ Cup Classic winner. Untouched Talent is a 12-year-old Storm Cat mare who herself won at the graded stakes level. Bodemeister, the speedy 2012 Arkansas Derby winner that finished second in the Kentucky Derby and Preakness, is the best of her offspring — so far. The gestation period for Thoroughbreds is typically 11 months, or about 340 days. So by this time next year, we should see the first of American Pharoah’s progeny.

American Pharoah will cover a full book of mares, somewhere in the neighborhood of 200. Each breeding will cost $200,000.
