Kate Upton isn’t shy about her affection for this stud, admitting in front of her boyfriend — Detroit pitcher Justin Verlander — and the world that she would like to “make out” with her crush.
The lucky male in question? None other than Triple Crown-winner American Pharoah, according to a Fox Sports report.
American Pharoah, who raced in his last event Saturday at the Breeders’ Cup Classic before he heads into retirement, was the object of several Upton comments this week. Kate first made the statement on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, acknowledging she was giddy to meet the horse that won the 2015 Kentucky Derby as well as the Preakness and Belmont races, and looked forward to a possible make out session.
“I’m so excited, so excited to meet American Pharoah… Also, I just want to make out with American Pharoah… The horse, not the jockey.”
Jimmy Fallon, who’s known for playing games on his variety/talk show, was incredulous when Upton readily admitted to wanting to make out with a horse. For her part, Kate continued with the interview without breaking stride, much like American Pharoah did in breaking a nearly 40-year drought of horses to win the Triple Crown.
“I’m going to really make out. Do you think I have to ask first? ‘Can I make out with your horse?'”
As if that wasn’t enough, talking about a make out session with a horse, Kate took it a step further on Saturday. Upton, who was scheduled to hand out the trophy at the Breeders’ Cup Classic, repeated her comments about making out with American Pharoah at a pre-race event. Kate was even asked if Verlander was ever jealous of her lip-locking with animals. Upton said that her boyfriend wasn’t, as he had seen her make out with several animals.
Kate Upton would at least get the chance to meet American Pharoah at the race. The historic male horse took home first place in the $5 million Breeders’ Cup, giving him a fitting finale to his once-in-a-lifetime career, Fox Sports reported. American Pharoah took the race with relative ease, finishing 6.5 lengths out in front of the crowded field.
In addition to a chance for a make out session, Kate also enjoyed a little betting action while at the event, a CBS affiliate reported Sunday. According to the article, Upton bet on Tepin in an earlier race, winning money on the filly.
“I was sitting at a table listening to some guys talking about how this filly couldn’t win, so I went with my girl side and she won.”
Kate — accompanied by Verlander to the event — was also seen enjoying time with American Pharoah trainer Bob Baffert before the race. Wearing a long white dress and a white hat with black feathers, Upton posed with pictures him and his family.
“I really enjoy it here. It’s really about the horses and not the money as opposed to other places.”
No official word if the potential make-out session was given before or after the race, but Kate did post to her Instagram account a photo of Upton and American Pharoah face-to-face. The caption read “Oh yes it happened!!! #americanpharoah #grandslam #triplecrown.”
There’s no word yet as to what American Pharoah thought about having the chance to make out with Kate Upton, but SB Nation guessed as to what the horse might have thought.
Kate has used horses in her promotional work as well. In a recent Game Of War: Fire Age commercial Upton starred in, she is seen riding into the battle on a horse.
