Pat Day

As a world-famous jockey, Pat racked up more than 8,800 wins in his 32-year racing career. He won nine U.S. Triple Crown races and says his greatest victory came aboard Lil E’ Tee in the 1992 Kentucky Derby. He’s also a four-time winner of the Eclipse Award for Outstanding Jockey and was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in 1991. He is the only jockey to have ridden at least one horse in each of the first 20 Breeders’ Cups and currently ranks second in all-time Breeders’ Cup wins – with 12 victories. He’s also the all-time leading rider at both Churchill Downs in Louisville and Keeneland in Lexington. Since his retirement from horse racing in 2005, Pat is very involved with the Racetrack Chaplaincy of America and its mission to minister to the spiritual, emotional, physical, social and educational needs of people involved in all aspects of the horse racing industry.
