HOT SPRINGS — Zayat Stables’ American Pharoah lived up to his 1-9 odds with an easy eight-length victory in Saturday’s 79th running of the $1 million Arkansas Derby before an estimated on track crowd of 67,500. It was the second straight Oaklawn win for the Bob Baffert-trainee, who had also won the $750,000 Rebel Stakes on March 14.
