BOLD RULER was foaled at Claiborne Farm on April 6, 1954. He was bred and owned by Wheatley Stable and trained by Jim Fitzsimmons. The star of the Phipps’ family stable, Bold Ruler won his first five races as a two year old, including the Youthful and Juvenile Stakes. As a three year old in 1957, Bold Ruler was named “Horse of the Year”, winning 11 of 16 races, and earning $415,160. His only unplaced effort was a fourth-place finish in the 1957 Kentucky Derby.

For Bold Ruler, 1958 was also a phenomenal year. He carried 133 pounds or more in every one of his seven starts, winning the Toboggan, the Carter, the Stymie, the Suburban and the Monmouth Handicaps, en route to the sprint title. Carrying 136 pounds in the Brooklyn Handicap on July 26, Bold Ruler was unplaced and his ankle later flared up. He was retired with a lifetime record of 23-4-2 from 33 starts, with earnings of $764,204. Bold Ruler had a brilliant stud career at Claiborne Farm before cancer led to him being euthanized in 1971.

The Bold Ruler was run as a handicap prior to 1981. Run at Aqueduct 1976-2001 and in 2009 and 2011. Run at Belmont 2002-08 and in 2010.

In the 1998 running, Kelly Kip set a Aqueduct track record for the six furlongs distance. He then came back to break that record in 1999, completing the six furlongs in 1:07 2/5.
