In 1955 the duo brought home Nashua in both the Preakness and Belmont Stakes. In 1957 Bold Ruler, bearing the colors of Gladys Mills Phipps’ Wheatley Stable (shown here), took Arcaro and Fitzsimmons to the Pimlico winner’s circle after the Preakness. Between them, Arcaro and Fitzsimmons collected 30 American classic wins.
