  • 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, Carry Back had disappointing early form but 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.
