Celebrity Jockey Pat Day
Meet Pat Day, Hall of Famer and Winning Jockey of Nine Triple Crown Races
His dreams took him in a different and immensely profitable direction when he started riding thoroughbreds, chalking up his first win in 1973 at Prescott Downs, Arizona. Unhampered by the weight issues with which so many jockeys struggle, Day quickly climbed the ranks in the Midwest. By the late 70’s he was at the top of the national standings and began his run as leading rider at Churchill Downs, one that may never be equaled.
