Celebrity Jockey Steve Cauthen
Meet Steve Cauthen, Hall of Famer and Triple Crown Winner!
After winning his first race, his experience, skill and confidence grew in leaps and bounds. Within two months he’d won 120 races. In 1977, along with being the nation’s leader in wins with 487, Cauthen also became the first jockey to win $6 million in a single season. This earned him not only a cover and Sportsman of the Year title from Sports Illustrated but also the nicknames “The Six Million Dollar Man” or “Stevie Wonder.” The racing industry rewarded him with Eclipse Awards for both apprentice and outstanding jockey.
