One of American Horse Racing's Top 100 MomentsEdit
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 was named the 1962 U.S. Champion 3-Year-Old Horse. He died in 1987.
