Gallant Fox

      (foaled 1927), American racehorse (Thoroughbred) who in 1930 won the U.S. Triple Crown—the Kentucky Derby, the Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes. A bay colt sired by Sir Gallahad III (bred in France) out of Marguerite, he raced for only two seasons (1929–30), winning 11 of 17 starts. His winnings of $308,275 as a three-year-old was a single season record for 17 years, and his career winnings of $328,165 was a world record subsequently broken. Retired to stud, he sired Omaha (winner of the Triple Crown in 1935) and numerous other successful racers.
