Sailor (foaled 1952 in Kentucky) was an American Thoroughbred racehorse. Bred and raced by heiress Isabel Dodge Sloane's Brookmeade Stable, he was out of the Brookmeade mare Flota and sired by U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee, Eight Thirty.
Sailor was conditioned for racing by Hall of Fame trainer, Preston Burch. As a three-year-old in 1955, the colt did not run in any of the U.S. Triple Crown races. However, under regular rider Hedley Woodhouse he won four major races that year including the prestigious Pimlico Special at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore. At age four he began the year competing in Florida where he won the Gulfstream Park Handicap then back at Pimlico Race Course he captured the John B. Campbell Handicap, at the time a race of national importance.
