Delahoussaye named to Hall of Fame

April 19, 1993|By Los Angeles Daily News

ARCADIA, Calif. -- Eddie Delahoussaye has been elected to thoroughbred racing's Hall of Fame.

Delahoussaye, 41, is one of 14 jockeys to win 5,000 races, seven to ride earners of more than $100 million, and four to win back-to-back Kentucky Derbys.

Delahoussaye, who has been on the Hall of Fame ballot the last few years, was elected by a panel of 100 turf writers, who chose him from among five jockeys, including Steve Cauthen.

Tom J. Kelly, who developed 63 stakes-winning horses in the East, was elected this year's Hall of Fame trainer. Three horses were elected: all-time earnings leader Alysheba and unbeaten Personal Ensign in their first year of eligibility -- five years after retiring -- and 1934 Kentucky Derby winner Cavalcade.

Induction ceremonies are Aug. 5 at the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame in Saratoga Springs, N.Y.
