Triple Crown race wins:
Belmont Stakes (1983)
Bred in Maryland) by Ryehill Farm, he was sired by Kentucky Derby winner Cannonade out of The Axe II mare Cold Hearted. To date, Caveat is one of eleven Maryland-bred colts to win a Triple Crown race.
At age three, Caveat won the Prince John Stakes and came in second in the Arkansas Derby three weeks prior to the Derby. Woody Stephens felt like he needed a little tightening up, so he ran Caveat six days before the Derby and won the Derby Trial. Then in May, he placed third in the Kentucky Derby behind Sunny's Halo. Five weeks later, under jockey Laffit Pincay, Jr., he won the Belmont Stakes against a record field of 15 horses, straining a ligament in his right foreleg at the top of the stretch in the process. The injury was the cause of his eventual retirement.
Caveat died in February, 1995, at Northview Stallion Station in Maryland and is buried in Windfields Farm Equine Cemetery at Northview Stallion Station.
