2014 NATIONAL MUSEUM OF RACING's Hall of Fame INDUCTION CEREMONY
ASHADO - A force as a juvenile and a champion at ages 3 and 4, ASHADO was a model of consistent excellence on the racetrack.
CLIFFORD - Upon his retirement in 1897, the New York Times described CLIFFORD as "one of the most brilliant performers the American turf has ever known."
CURLIN - Named in honor of a slave who fought in the Civil War, CURLIN made his career debut as a 3-year-old in February 2007 with a dazzling 12Â¾-length victory at Gulfstream Park. The scintillating performance prompted a private purchase by a partnership headed by majority shareholder Jess Jackson of Stonestreet Stables.
Lloyd Hughes - By the time he was 25 years old, Lloyd Hughes had registered a series of coveted accomplishments that placed him in the company of the greatest jockeys in America. He faded from the scene soon afterward, but what he achieved in a relatively short period of time cemented his status as one of the greatest riders of the 19th Century.
Alex Solis - Alex Solis hit one milestone early in 2014 when he turned 50. In August 2014 - as he was closing in on 5,000 career victories as a jockey - Solis celebrated his biggest career achievement when he was immortalized as a member of the National Museum of Racing's Hall of Fame.
Gary Jones - Gary Jones began his career as a racehorse trainer by sending out King Wako on opening day at Santa Anita in 1975. The horse won, setting the tone for a remarkable run by Jones that closed the same way it began - with a win.
PILLARS of the SPORT:
E. R. Bradley - A combination of legend and fact are woven into the traditional tales of Col. Edward Riley Bradley, but there is no doubt that he was an American success story on a grand scale.
E. P. Taylor - Few figures in the history of thoroughbred racing have had as diverse an impact as E.P. Taylor. The breeding, racing and sales arms of the sport all benefited from his vision.
