Zippy Chippy, Julie Krone, Bill Shoemaker, Del Mar - September 10th

Zippy Chippy, Thoroughbred racing’s lovable loser, made it 0-for-100 when he
finished last in an eight-horse field at the Three-County Fairgrounds in
Northampton, MA. ~2004
 
The 50th Anniversary of Michigan pari-mutuel racing is celebrated and Horse of the Year awards are established.  Michigan's Julie Krone became the first woman jockey (or trainer) ever inducted into the Thoroughbred Hall of Fame. ~1983
 
Del Mar becomes the leading track in the country with a daily average handle of $7,320,623; Olympic Native sets a track record for seven panels (1:20 1/5) in winning the Pat O'Brien B. C. Handicap; and Bill Shoemaker goes out a winner for the 889th and final time in his very last ride at the seaside oval on September 10. ~1989
