Carry Back (1958–1983) was an American Hall of Fame Thoroughbred racehorse with a less than stellar pedigree but who nonetheless won many important graded stakes races including the 1961 Kentucky Derby and Preakness Stakes. His racing colors were blue, silver hoops and sleeves. In the Belmont Stakes, Carry Back finished seventh in a nine-horse field, 14 lengths behind winner Sherluck, whom he had soundly beaten in the first two U.S. Triple Crown races.
