|Puerto Rico Horse of the Year (1954 and 1955)|
Camarero (1951–1956) was a Thoroughbred racehorse that was raised and raced in Puerto Rico. He was the winner of 73 races, including the Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing in Puerto Rico. Camarero is notable for setting the current world record of the most consecutive wins for a Thoroughbred racehorse at 56 in a series of races between April 1953 and August 1955.
His name translates to "waiter" in Spanish. Camarero was a small bay colt that weighed 750 pounds and stood only 14 hands high. His male line traced to The Finn and he was bred and owned by prominent San Juan newspaper man Jose Coll-Vidal.
As per Puerto Rican racetrack regulation, prohibitive favorites are not allowed to be wagered on, which meant that for most of Camarero's winning streak no on-track bets were taken. Camerero was the first winner of Puerto Rico's Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing, winning the Governor's Cup, Jose de Diego Stakes and Primavera Stakes in 1954, undefeated.
In 1958 Camarero was the first inductee in the Puerto Rico Horse Racing Hall of Fame. In 2006, the name of El Nuevo Commandante racetrack in Canóvanas, Puerto Rico, was changed to Hipódromo Camarero, in honor of the racehorse.
