Native Dancer, nicknamed the Grey Ghost, was one of the most celebrated and accomplished racehorses in history, the first horse made famous through the medium of television.
In his first season of racing Native Dancer won all nine races he entered, thrilling crowds with his come-from-behind running style. In his three-year-old campaign, the undefeated racehorse received a great deal of media attention leading up to the 1953 Kentucky Derby. He won both the Gotham Mile and the prestigious Wood Memorial en route to US racing's most prestigious event but at the Derby, Native Dancer lost for the only time in his career. Following his loss at Churchill Downs, Native Dancer quickly re-established himself as one of the best horses in America. He never lost again that season and was named Champion Three Year Old Colt.
However, he had to be retired as a result of a recurring foot injury with a record of 21 wins out of 22 lifetime races.
