Laffit Pincay Biography


Laffit Pincay was born December 29, 1946 in Panama City,

Panama and is a retired jockey who was based primarily in the United States.


Laffit Pincay began his riding career in his native Panama. In 1966, prominent

horseman Fred W. Hooper and agent Camilo Marin sponsored him to come to the

United States and ride under contract. He started his American career at

Arlington Park in Chicago and won eight of his first eleven races. During his

career, Pincay Jr. was voted the prestigious George Woolf Memorial Jockey Award

in 1970 that honors a rider whose career and personal conduct exemplifies the

very best example of participants in the sport of thoroughbred racing. In 1996,

he was voted the Mike Venezia Memorial Award for extraordinary

sportsmanship and citizenship. He has won the Eclipse Award for

Outstanding Jockey on four occasions and was the United States' leading jockey

seven times.


In 2004, Hollywood Park Racetrack announced the creation of

the Laffit Pincay Jr. Award to be presented annually on Hollywood Gold Cup Day

that features the race he won a record nine times. The award was designed by

American sculptor Nina Kaiser and is presented to someone who has served the

horse racing industry with integrity, dedication, determination and

distinction.


At the time of his retirement (in April 2003), he remained

horse racing's winningest jockey, with 9,530 career victories. On December 1,

2006, Russell Baze passed Pincay on the all-time win list.


With his 8,834th win, on December 10, 1999 at Hollywood Park

Racetrack in California aboard Irish Nip, he broke the career victory record

previously held by Bill Shoemaker.


He won the Kentucky Derby in 1984 aboard Swale (horse) and

also took three consecutive Belmont Stakes between 1982 and 1984.


Pincay was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and

Hall of Fame in 1975.
