Hall-of Famer Jimmy Winkfield, winner of consecutive Kentucky Derbies in
1901 and 1902. Arguably the single greatest image ever taken of a reinsman, Winkfield was a ferocious competitor, who also raced overseas, where he won the Moscow Derby, the Russian Derby and the Polish Derby. A self-made man of the world who rode against a Russian czar and for a Polish prince and a German baron, he escaped the Bolsheviks in World War I and the Nazis in World War II. After his retirement as a rider, he settled in France, where he trained successfully for a number of years, He died at 91 on March 23, 1974, just weeks before the running of the 1974 centennial Kentucky Derby.
