Pincay Wins 8,500th

Laffit Pincay rode two winners at Santa Anita to raise his lifetime total to 8,500 - just 333 behind Bill Shoemaker, the leading jockey in thoroughbred racing history.

At his current pace, Pincay, 50, will approach Shoemaker’s record in 1999. Pincay finished 1996 with 129 winners.

A native of Panama, Pincay has been riding in the United States since 1966. He moved past Johnny Longden into second place on the all-time win list in 1985 when he rode career winner No. 6,033.
