Jaipur (foaled 1959 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse who won the 1962 Belmont Stakes and was voted that year's U.S. Eclipse Award for Outstanding 3-Year-Old Male Horse.
As a yearling, Jaipur was broken and exercised by soon-to-be jockey, Michael Tornambe, who was the first to ride the colt and learned well under his handling in 1960, along with the care of farm manager, Ralph Delaney.
One of American Horse Racing's Top 100 Moments
In the 1962 Travers Stakes at Saratoga Race Course, Jaipur won by a fraction of a nose in track record time over Ridan. Still written and talked about today, the race is listed in the 2006 book Horse Racing's Top 100 Moments written by the staff of Blood-Horse Publications. The race result determined which colt would be named the 1962 U.S. Champion 3-Year-Old Horse.
