Doubledogdare (1953-1974) was an American Thoroughbred Champion racehorse. Bred and raced by the renowned Claiborne Farm of Bull Hanciock, she was sired by Double Jay, the American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt of 1946 and a four-time Leading broodmare sire in North America. Her dam was Flaming Top, a daughter of the 1935 U.S. Triple Crown champion, Omaha.

Conditioned for racing by Moody Jolley, at age two Doubledogdare earned important wins including the 1955 Matron Stakes under future U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee Eric Guerin and the 1955 National Stallion Stakes, Fillies Division ridden by another future Hall of Fame jockey, Jack Westrope. [1] Doubledogdare's 1955 performances saw her win six of ten starts and finish second twice, earning $127,689. She shared American Co-Champion Two-Year-Old Filly honors with Nasrina.

Racing at age three, Doubledogdare won the Oaks Prep [2] and then ran second by a "hairline" in the Kentucky Oaks. [3] Among her other important wins in 1956 were the Ashland and Spinster Stakes, helping give her the American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly title.

Retired to broodmare duty, Doubledogdare's foals met with very little success in racing.
