Triplicate was purchased as an unsuccessful three-year-old for $6,000 by actor/dancer Fred Astaire who owned Blue Valley Ranch, a Thoroughbred breeding farm in the San Fernando Valley. Under veteran trainer Clyde Phillips, Triplicate had his best year in 1946 at age five. In March he defeated Howard Hawks' horse and won the 1½ mile San Juan Capistrano Handicap in track record time and on July 27 beat the best horses on the West Coast in the $100,000 Hollywood Gold Cup.
Trainer Clyde Phillips died on December 17, 1946 and Triplicate's race conditioning was taken over by Lloyd Campion. In 1947, Triplicate's most important win came under superstar jockey Johnny Longden in the $75,000 Golden Gate Handicap at Golden Gate Fields. In his last year of racing at age seven in 1949, he met with only modest success.
