Baffert reflects on Zona days

Tucson, AZ (KOLD) - Everyone was betting on him to win, he took the racing world captivate for almost a full calendar year, he was just three years old. I'm referring to American Pharoah who was the first Triple Crown winner in 37 years and we finally got a homecoming from his trainer.

Nogales native and former Wildcat Bob Baffert was back in Tucson this weekend attending the Utah vs Arizona football game. This gave our own Damien Alameda the chance to catch up with the Arizona Sports Hall of Famer. 

Baffert discusses his fond memories during his time at the UofA now that he has some free time. Baffert is set to retire American Pharoah who won his racing finale at the Breeder's Cup two weeks ago.
