The jockeys are incorrectly named. Kennedy Road was ridden by Bill Shoemaker, Quack by Don Pierce, and Cougar II by Laffit Pincay. Shoemaker had been replaced by Cougar II's owner, and in a bit of revenge, Shoe beat Cougar II in an upset.

Good horse but could not catch Ack Ack, but he won the Horse of the Year for that one, going East, IN HIS PLACE, and knocking off the big guns there. The comparison that Ack Ack handled him on the West coast, proved his level of ability and defined the champ that year · 1742 days ago
