Dammit - I can't get back into the last post to edit it. nsingmanfigured it out, it's Steve Cauthen - or as I will always know him Stevie Cauthen - best known as the youngest Jockey to ever win the Triple Crown, riding Affirmed in 1978. Also the LAST jockey to ever win the Triple Crown. He owns a farm and training facility known as Dreamfields in his hometown of Verona, Kentucky. I was so fascinated with him when he won the Triple Crown - he wasn't much older than me and for many years he figured prominently in my girlish fantasies.
