Horse Odds-On Favourite For SI Sportsman Of The Year!

Wonder horse American Pharoah is the odds-on favourite with bookmakers William Hill to win the Sports Illustrated 2015 Sportsman Of The Year.

William Hill offer 4-7 that American Pharoah wins the coveted award, after a stellar year that has seen him win the US Triple Crown, the William Hill Haskell Invitational and Breeders’ Cup Classic.

“American Pharoah is one of the greatest horses ever to race and what an accolade if an equine star were to beat the best human athletes,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Kansas City Royals are second-favourites with William Hill after winning the World Series baseball, while it is at least 20-1 odds for all other contenders.

“Kansas City Royals are the only realistic challengers to American Pharoah. You could say, it’s a two-horse race,” said William Hill spokesman Jon Ivan-Duke.

Sports Illustrated 2015 Sportsman Of The Year: 4-7 American Pharoah, 5-4 Kansas City Royals, 20-1 Lionel Messi, 40-1 Carli Lloyd, 40-1 Usain Bolt, 50-1 Thomas Davis, 66-1 Jordan Spieth, 66-1 Novak Djokovic, 66-1 Stephen Curry, 100-1 Ronda Rousey, 100-1 Serena Williams, 100-1 Simone Biles
