Jean Cruguet (born March 8, 1939 in Agen, Lot-et-Garonne, France) is a French-American thoroughbred horse racing jockey who won the United States Triple Crown of Thoroughbred Racing.At age five, Jean Cruguet was placed in an orphanage after his father abandoned the family and his mother was unable to cope. From age ten to sixteen, he lived at a secondary school run by Roman Catholic priests where he says he was physically abused. At age sixteen, a friend of his grandfather offered the diminutive Cruguet work at a Thoroughbred race track. His fledgling career as a jockey was interrupted by mandatory military service and he served in the French Army during the Algerian War.After being discharged from the army, Cruguet returned to thoroughbred flat racing. He replaced army-bound jockey Yves Saint-Martin at the stable run by trainer Francois Mathet. Once Saint-Martin was discharged from the army, Cruguet had to find new rides but met with only limited success. After meeting his future wife Denyse, a trainer and one of the pioneering woman in French racing, in 1965, they decided to emigrate to the United States. In Florida, Cruguet was hired to ride for Horatio Luro at Hialeah Park Race Track and began to achieve success in the ensuing years. In 1969, he won a major Grade I race aboard Arts and Letters when he replaced Braulio Baeza due to another commitment, riding the future Hall of Fame colt to victory in the Metropolitan Handicap at Belmont Park.In 2004, Jean Cruguet said Hoist The Flag was the best horse he ever rode. The 1970 U.S. Champion two-year-old colt, ridden by Cruguet in all his starts, went undefeated in his short career but in his three-year-old season was injured in March 1971 while preparing for the Wood Memorial Stakes. The career-ending injury denied the colt a chance to try for the Triple Crown.Cruguet and his wife returned to race in Europe for the 1972 season, where he won Group One races such as the Prix Vermeille and Poule dEssai des Pouliches in France, and the Champion Stakes in England. He rode the Champion San San in all her wins for trainer Angel Penna, Sr. but missed being aboard the filly for her win in the Prix de lArc de Triomphe when he was sidelined by injury as a result of a racing accident. After finishing second in Frances jockey standings for 1972, Cruguet and his wife returned to the United States.In 1976, Cruguet rode the two-year-old colt Seattle Slew to victory in the Champagne Stakes. The following year, he achieved racing immortality aboard Seattle Slew. They won the Wood Memorial Stakes and the Flamingo Stakes en route to winning the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, and the Belmont Stakes, thereby capturing American racings Triple Crown. In a move still written about today, with 20 yards to go to the finish line in the Belmont Stakes, Cruguet stood up in the stirrups, raised his right arm over his head, and jubilantly gave the crowd a victory salute by waving his whip in the air.In 1978, Cruguet
