As a 3-year-old he made his debut at the Kentucky Derby in 1919. He defeated his stablemates which was a surprise to every one that worked with this horse. He won by five lengths in the driving rain to break his maiden.
He was shipped to Baltimore to run in the Preakness which was only four days after the Derby. He won by four lengths and then went to the Belmont and won easily by 11-furlongs and set a new American record.

As a 2-year-old, he had moment of looking goodby winning the Cowdin Stakes and Flash Stakes. Legendary jockey Earl Sande came out of retirement and rode Gallant Fox during his time as a 3-year-old.
He went on to win the Wood Memorial under the training of “Sunny Jim” Fitzsimmons and then proceeded to win the Kentucky Derby and the Preakness Stake by four lengths.
In the final leg of the Triple Crown, Gallant Fox won the Belmont Stakes by three lengths to become the second winner of the Triple Crown in history.
The horse went on to win many races after history was made and retired with a career record of 11-3-2 from 17 starts and record lifetime earnings of $328,165.
