Noble Threewitt, J.C. Williams, Jockey Club - February 24th

On his 96th birthday, Noble Threewitt officially retired from training Thoroughbreds, ending a career that spanned eight decades. ~2007
 
Acting upon an earlier recommendation by The Jockey Club stewards, the Thoroughbred Racing Associations unanimously approved lip tattoos as a method of identifying Thoroughbred racehorses. ~1947
 
Trainer J.C. Williams set a North American record by saddling eight winners in 12 attempts at Waterford Park in West Virginia. Williams also owned seven of those eight winners, which established a record for most wins by an owner in one day at one racetrack. ~1979
