When it comes to sports in Louisville, it is all about Cardinals basketball and horse racing. Louisville head coach Rick Pitino has helped the Cardinals emerge as a true national power in recent years, but the biggest superstar in town at the moment is Triple Crown winner American Pharoah.

Pitino, a horse racing enthusiast himself, got the chance to meet the now-legendary horse Saturday morning. You can see the photo here.

It does not get much more Louisville than that photo.
