The Pamplemousse (foaled April 19, 2006 in Kentucky) is an American Thoroughbred racehorse. He was a contender for the 2009 Kentucky Derby and Triple Crown but had to withdraw due to injury. His regular jockey is Alex Solis.

Racing Career

The Pamplemousse broke his maiden at Hollywood Park on December 14, 2008. He won the San Rafael Stakes for his 3 year old debut, defeating Square Eddie and was also victorious in the Sham Stakes, leading the entire way and winning by 6 lengths. During his workouts it was rumored that The Pamplemousse was clocked at running 50 miles per hour, which is a rare and incredible feat for a horse. Many admired his abilities, including the media: "he is that rare thoroughbred with sharp speed and the ability to carry it over a distance of ground." Unfortunately he was scratched from the Santa Anita Derby on the morning of the race on the advice of the vet. It was announced on April 5th, 2009 that he was out of the Derby due to a tendon flare-up, and will be sidelined as long as 6 months.

It was reported in May 2010 that The Pamplemousse resumed training after recently undergoing tests that showed the 4-year-old could resume exercise with trainer Julio Canani. He will start off with light jogging and the plan is to have him ready to race at Del Mar Racetrack when it opens for its 2010 summer meet. Although there is no exact timetable for The Pamplemousse’s return, Canani said if and when he does come back, he expects the horse to continue winning. All three of his wins were in front-running fashion. He is currently stabled at Hollywood Park Racetrack.
