Eddie Arcaro & Nashua

In 1955, Jockey Eddie Arcaro did not ride the great horse Nashua to a Kentuky Derby win, but he was in the irons when Nashua won the Preakness, the Belmont Stakes, and match race with that year’s Derby winner, Swaps.  He beat Swaps by 6 1/2 lengths, to earn him Horse of the Year honors.  Nashua rates among the great horses of all-time.  Right up their with the Secretariats.
