Bob Black Jack is a California-bred colt by Stormy Jack (a son of Bertrando), out of the mare Molly's Prospector. Bob Black Jack is the world recorder for 6 furlongs on any surface - 1:06.53. He also holds the Santa Anita Racetrack track record for six as well as seven furlongs.

Since Bob Black Jack was not expected to achieve great heights, his earnings have been exceptional, amounting to over 300 times as much as his bargain sale price of $4,500.

Bob Black Jack was the pace setter in the 2008 Kentucky Derby and also scored a solid second in the Santa Anita Derby behind Colonel John.

In the Grade I Malibu Stakes, he made the record time set by Spectacular Bid in 1980.

After a 14 month layoff, the lightly raced Bob Black Jack came back to wire the field winning the San Carlos Handicap by 2 and 1/2 lengths over the favored 2009 Breeders' Cup Sprint winner Dancing in Silks.
