Foaled April 19, 1960 in California, Jet Deck was the offspring of Moon Deck and a daughter of Barred named Miss Night Bar.[1] Miss Night Bar was a granddaughter of Three Bars (TB).[2]

He was a multiple stakes winner and was named by the American Quarter Horse Association (or AQHA) the 1962 Champion Quarter Running Two Year Old Colt and Stallion, as well as the 1963 World Champion Quarter Running Horse.[1] He raced for two years, with thirty-one starts. He won twenty-two of his starts, coming in second fourt times and placing third twice. He earned forty-two AQHA racing points to go with his money earnings of $200,625.00. His highest speed rating was AAAT.[3]

After his racing career he was retired to stud duties, but died on August 26, 1971 from an injection of barbiturates into his bloodstream.
