  1. Carry Back

    Carry Back was an American Hall of Fame Thoroughbred racehorse. In a career which lasted from January 1960 through November 1963 he ran sixty-one times and won twenty-one races. As a two-year-old he ran twenty-one times, emerging as one of the best juveniles in America with a series of important victories late in the season including the Garden State Futurity. At three he was the best of his generation in the United States, winning several major stakes races including the Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes and being unanimously voted U.S. Champion Three-Year-Old Colt Racing as a four-year-old, his early form was disappointing but he returned to his best with wins in the Metropolitan Handicap, Monmouth Handicap and the Whitney Stakes to establish himself as one of the leaders of an exceptionally strong handicap division headed by Kelso. In October he became one of the few American champions to race in Europe when he contested the Prix de l'Arc de Triomphe. In the same year he became the fourth horse, after Citation, Nashua and Round Table to earn $1M in prize money. After spending several months at stud he returned to racing in 1963, when the highlight of his season was a win in the Trenton Handicap. He then returned to stud where he had limited success as a sire of winners. Trained by the outspoken and unconventional Jack Price, Carry Back's modest beginnings and exciting, come-from-behind racing style made him one of the most popular racehorses of his era.
