He then spoke about the importance of the cause everyone came out for, raising awareness and funds for PDJF.  Horse owner Larry Roman committed to placing a $10,000 bet on American Pharoah to benefit the PDJF.

Following his grand introduction, Espinoza got on the microphone to thank everyone in attendance and across the world for their support.

He told guests that he hoped the third time would be the charm in racing to a Triple Crown victory, the first in 35 years.  He joked that he’d do everything differently since his last two tries were unsuccessful.
