Interview With Eddie Arcaro

Here is an interview with Hall Of Fame Jockey Eddie Arcaro from September 8th, 1957. Back then flat racing was the top sport in the country and Arcaro was the boss Jockey. Arcaro's position in the jockey pecking order reminds me of Jerry Bailey of the 1990's- early 2000's minus the ladders. Some of the things that Arcaro talks about reminds me of when Bailey rode in New York from 1996-2005. Jerry Bailey would dominate the betting with his mounts always attracting more money than they deserved. Who can forget the New York boo birds coming out in full force whenever Bailey lost. Seems like Arcaro dominated like that in his day and dealt with the same issues as Bailey. Enjoy the interview.
