One of the leading two-year-old colts of 1961, Sir Gaylord was the favorite going into the 1962 Kentucky Derby. Shortly before the Derby, on May 4, he suffered a hairline fracture of the sesamoid bone in his right foreleg during a workout which ended his racing career.
Sir Gaylord was successful as a sire. He stood at stud in the United States until 1972, when he was sent to Haras du Quesnay (France). His best-known progeny included 1968 Epsom Derby winner and champion broodmare sire Sir Ivor (1965) and Habitat (1966), a top-level stakes winner in England and France and also a successful sire.
Sir Gaylord died in France of renal failure in the spring of 1981.
