Older Comments about Gallant Fox...

The Fox of Belair, 1930 Triple Crown winner and the first Derby champion to break from a starting gate, sired the 1935 TC winner, Omaha, in his first crop. In his Triple Crown year, ridden by Earl Sande and wearing a red hood, Gallant Fox went 9 for 10, with a second in the Travers, being bested in a stunning upset by 100-1 shot Jim Dandy. His epitaph at Claiborne Farm reads “He swept like a meteor across the sky of 1930.”

  • airedale2008 · A fun fact about Jim Dandy, winner at 30-1 over a muddy Saratoga track of the 1929 Grand Union Hotel Stakes: his sire Jim Gaffney was runner-up (at 30-1) in the 1907 running of the same race. The winner that day was the 1-5 favorite, Colin. · 142 days ago
One of my all time favorite horses. It saddens me to see how little most people know about him. I'd like to see (possibly write) Some articles on some of the older heroes.

  • travel_vic · that Travers, the story I tell everyone about overconfidence, is on You Tube..Same scenario happened with Conquistador Cielo and Aloma's Ruler went out like a match race and Rumaway Groom flew by them late. · 619 days ago
  • travel_vic · in that earlier Travers the past two year old champ, Whiceone, broke down never to race again. Everyone failed to notice that only one colt had a mud mark and that was the winner. I see this pattern in other sports where two dominate combatants, worried so much about the other that they assume NO ONE ELSE is in the contest, lose by that very isolationist mindset. · 619 days ago
If I am not mistaken, wasn't Omaha one of his first crops? These two (Omaha and Gallant Fox) are tremendously under-rated. Gallant Fox won the TC, and sired a TC winner. Just that alone is not believable.

  • Cocoa2 · His owners were of Native descent if I remember right, and black gold was because Bradley asked all foals have black in their name, and the precious oil reserves on their land · 629 days ago
  • buckpasser · Yes Black Gold was owned by Indians Rosa M. hoots whose husband dreamed that his mare Useeit would have a coltbthat would win the Derby. When they found oil on the property, she was able to breed her mare to Black Toney and Bradley asked her to name the horse with a name beginning with B as all of Bradley's horses' names began with the letter B. · 629 days ago
