Islip Town Congratulates American Pharoah - 6/8/15

Islip, N.Y. – 6-8-15 – Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter was on-hand to welcome American Pharoah to Long Island on Tuesday, as First Class Equine Air Travel opted to arrive at Islip’s Long Island MacArthur Airport instead of other tri-state airports. Supervisor Carpenter joined New York Racing Association (NYRA) representatives in presenting a traditional Belmont carnation bouquet to American Pharoah ahead of his big race, the same type of flowers that eventually blanketed and adorned American Pharoah Saturday after winning the Belmont Stakes Triple Crown. 

“It only took one look but as soon as we saw American Pharoah step off the plane, we just knew he was a special horse,” said Islip Town Supervisor Angie Carpenter. “I am thrilled the Town of Islip and MacArthur Airport got to play an important role in this piece of racing history,” Supervisor Carpenter added.
