Foaled in 1968 and bred to run, Jet Run might have been expected to be a successful racehorse. Instead, the 16.3-hand bay gelding turned out to be one of the most consistent "big occasion" show jumpers of his era, winner of no less than three Pan American Games Gold Medals (two for the U.S., one for Mexico), the World Cup Final, the President's Cup, the AGA Horse of the Year title, two World Championship Bronze Medals, and innumerable Grand Prix and individual competitions.
