Fred Stone Sadly Passed Away in 2018. Hand Signed & Numbered Limited Edition Print. Personally Hand Signed by Fred Stone.Texas-born Willie Shoemaker is recognized as the most successful jockey in racing history. One of his greatest victories was at the 1986 Kentucky Derby when, at age 54, he rode a 17-1 shot named Ferdinand to victory. Just about the only goal he didn't accomplish was to sweep racing's Triple Crown - the Kentucky Derby, Preakness and Belmont stakes - as did his friend and rival, jockey. Shoemaker's life and career wasn't all roses, however.
His most famous mishap occurred during the 1957 Kentucky Derby, when as he raced to what seemed to be certain victory, he mistook the 16th pole for the finish line and stood up in the stirrups, resulting in his mount slowing down and a horse named Iron Liege charging ahead to win the race by a nose. He was also badly injured twice during the late 1960s.His most serious injury, however, occurred in 1991 when he was involved in an automobile accident that left him paralyzed from the neck down. Unable to race, he spent the next several years as a trainer, finally retiring from the sport altogether in 1997. Hand signed by the Artist and Jockey, and numbered.
