First "upset" victory1919 - Horse racing - The term "upset" is thought to derive from a horse of the same name. In the 1919 Sanford Memorial Stakes, 7-2 longshot Upset handed favorite Man o' War the only loss of the stallion's career. Man o' War suffered an uncharacteristically poor start; while he was turned around in the melee behind the starting line, the tape was sprung. Man o' War "was almost left at the post," the Louisville Courier-Journal reported.* Though the champion had enough power to correct this error and gained ground gamely to attain third place on the inside rail in the last eighth, the second mistake could not be surmounted and led to his defeat. Johnny Loftus on Man o' War may have waited just a few seconds too long to make his move on the backstretch turn, where Man o' War was blocked in by other horses, including Upset. Loftus was cleared of charges but the following year the Jockey Club refused to renew his jockey's license.
- (This was before mechanical starting gates were widely used. Horses circled behind the starting line, then lined up behind a cord strung across the track, which was jerked out of the way when the race starter dropped a flag. Race courses which do not use a starting gate still use this method today. Steeplechase races do this due to the high number of starters.)
2002 - George Thompson, a lexicographic researcher, used the full-text online search capabilities of the New York Times databases to disprove this claimed coinage. The verb to upset and the noun upset, were traced to the years 1865 and 1877, respectively. http://www.wordorigins.org/index.php/upset
