Thoroughbred racing

Like their father and grandmother before them, Dinny Phipps and his sister Cynthia had a long working relationship with the Hancock family's Claiborne breeding farm near Paris, Kentucky. In 1995, Dinny Phipps's great filly Inside Information won the Molly Pitcher Handicap, following his sister Cynthia who won it in 1992 with Versailles Treaty, and his father Ogden who had also won it in 1988 with Personal Ensign.

Dinny Phipps and his father were two of the subjects in the 2003 book Legacies of the Turf: A Century of Great Thoroughbred Breeders by race historian Edward L. Bowen that chronicled the history of Thoroughbred racing's most influential breeders. In 1978 Dinny Phipps received the Eclipse Award of Merit, the horse racing industry's highest honor, plus he was voted the New York Turf Writers Award as "The Man Who Did the Most for Racing." In 2002, Phipps received the Industry Service Award from the Thoroughbred Owners and Breeders Association.

Among the many successful horses raced by Dinny Phipps were:

  • Rhythm (b. 1987) - 1989 American Champion Two-Year-Old Colt, won 1989 Breeders' Cup Juvenile;
  • Dispute (b. 1990) - a winner of four Grade 1 races including the Kentucky Oaks;
  • Inside Information (b. 1991) - 1995 American Champion Older Female Horse, won 1995 Breeders' Cup Distaff, 2008 U.S. Racing Hall of Fame inductee;
  • Storm Flag Flying (b. 2000) - voted the 2002 American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly, won 2002 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies;
  • Pleasant Home (b. 2001) - won 2005 Breeders' Cup Distaff;
  • Smuggler (b. 2002) - voted the 2005 American Champion Three-Year-Old Filly.
  • Orb (b. 2010) - won 2013 Kentucky Derby.
  • In partnership with William S. Farish III, Dinny Phipps bred Storm Song, the 1996 Breeders' Cup Juvenile Fillies winner and American Champion Two-Year-Old Filly. In England, Dinny Phipps' horse, Posse, won the 1980 G1 Sussex Stakes and G2 St. James's Palace Stakes and went on to sire Group 1 winners.

    In 2017, he was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame as a Pillar of the Turf.

    Personal life

    Phipps had six children and 24 grandchildren, including five-year-old namesake Ogden Phipps. His wife's name is Ande, the mother of four of the Phipps children.
