From a report in the Thoroughbred Times, report that Jean Cruguet, yes Jean Cruguet, is riding at Keeneland. A tribute to his late wife, and earnings going to charity, what a great story. I watched Jean ride Seattle Slew to his Belmont, the third jewel of his Triple Crown.
From Thoroughbred Times:
As a Triple Crown winner, Jean Cruguet already holds a distinction few jockeys can claim.
Next month, Cruguet hopes to do something no jockey has ever done.
The 72-year-old Cruguet, who piloted Seattle Slew to a Triple Crown sweep in 1977, says he intends to honor his wife by riding a horse for trainer Jean Paul Pucet on April 27 at Keeneland Race Course.
Cruguet will ride Ratoath Special, a bay Include filly, in a starter allowance sprint for three-year-old fillies.
“I will be very disappointed if I do not win that race,” said Cruguet, who lives in Versailles, Kentucky. For the rest of the article: http://www.thoroughbredtimes.com/racing-news/2011/04/01/cruguet-to-ride-at-keeneland.aspx
Cruguet said that on that day riders will be asked to donate a share of their earnings to the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund, and he intends to contribute everything he makes to the charity.
