This picture was also taken on Thanksgiving day, 1936 at the Bowie Race Course. Apprentice jockey Ira Hanford is sitting on Piccolo after winning the Thanksgiving Handicap. The 18 year-old Hanford made history earlier that year by becoming the first apprentice jockey to ever win the Kentucky Derby. Hanford won the "Run for the Roses" while riding a 20-1 long shot - Bold Venture. Handford's Kentucky Derby win came one year after Belair Stable's Omaha won the Derby and the other two legs of the Triple Crown.
