Memorial for Shoemaker

October 14, 2003|Bob Mieszerski

A public memorial service for jockey-trainer Bill Shoemaker, who died Sunday at 72 at his home in San Marino, will be held at Santa Anita on Oct. 21 at 4 p.m.

The second-winningest rider in history with 8,833 victories, Shoemaker requested that his body be cremated and that there be no funeral.

Santa Anita will open the grandstand for the memorial; the ceremony will take place in the winner's circle.

Shoemaker's family has asked that, in lieu of flowers, donations be made to the Shoemaker Foundation, the Don MacBeth Memorial Jockey Fund or the Paralysis Project.
