The Prince of Jockeys

Pellom McDaniels III

University Press of Kentucky

The aftermath of Isaac Murphy's death is accounted for, as well as Lucy Murphy's life as a widow, the changing nature of horse racing, and the effects of Plessy v. Ferguson on African Americans. The chapter also covers the demise of the black jockey in American horse racing, as great riders like Anthony Hamilton, Willie Simms, and Jimmy Winkfield left the United States for Europe, where they found success. The chapter also covers reporter Frank Borries's efforts to debunk a myth related to Murphy's final resting place, leading to a work that would be an invaluable resource for researchers.

Keywords:   sport of kings, Sambo stereotype, Currier and Ives, black masculinity, Plessy v. Ferguson, Jimmy Winkfield, Willie Simms, Anthony Hamilton, Frank Borries
