Phipps, Ogden

▪ 2003

      American racehorse owner and breeder (b. Nov. 26, 1908, New York, N.Y.—d. April 22, 2002, West Palm Beach, Fla.), was one of the dominant figures in Thoroughbred horse racing in the 20th century. Phipps owned or bred numerous stakes winners, including Buckpasser, the 1966 Horse of the Year, and Personal Ensign, which in 1988 retired undefeated after winning the Breeders' Cup Distaff. A wealthy financier whose grandfather had been the business partner of steel magnate Andrew Carnegie, Phipps became a racehorse owner in 1932. He served as chairman of the Jockey Club, Thoroughbred racing's regulatory agency, from 1964 to 1974. He won Eclipse Awards as the sport's outstanding owner and breeder in 1988 and as the outstanding owner in 1989.
