Pincay rode a record nine Hollywood Gold Cup winners, including Aptitude in 2001 and Sky Jack in 2002 - his final mounts in the 1 1/4-mile classic. He surpassed Shoemaker as the leading Gold Cup jockey when Sky Jack prevailed by a nose over Momentum in a dynamic stretch duel. The triumph came 32 years after his first Gold Cup win aboard Pleasure Seeker in 1970.
"Laffit has not only played a monumental role in shaping Hollywood Park history, he has been a tremendous role model for everybody involved in the sport," Hollywood Park president Rick Baedeker said. "We're awed by his accomplishments and very proud to honor him."
