The Aging Eight rode back into the hearts and consciousness of horse race fans Saturday at Santa Anita Park. On a postcard day that had nine races focused on horses and one focused on jockeys, the humans stole the day. Canadian veteran Sandy Hawley, 59, won the Jockey Living Legends race on a horse named Tribal Chief, and was followed to the finish line by seven other retired Hall of Famers.

Unlike fellow Canadian John Longden, Sandy Hawley didn't have a successful ending to his riding career. While Longden went out a winner with George Royal in the last ride of his career in the 1966 San Juan Capistrano, Hawley had to settle for third aboard 3-5 favorite Terremoto in the $125,000-added Dominion Day Handicap on Wednesday at Woodbine.

Veteran jockey Carlos Marquez was listed in "serious" condition at an Arcadia hospital late Wednesday night after being thrown from his horse during the day's feature race at Santa Anita. Marquez, who earlier had been listed as "critical but stable," was still unconscious seven hours after being brought into the emergency room at Methodist Hospital of Southern California, but doctors said the 44-year-old Cuban-born rider's condition was gradually improving.

Sandy Hawley has just ridden two winners, one of them a long shot, and had two other mounts in the money. It has been a long day. As he stands at a mirror in the Santa Anita jockeys' room, knotting his necktie, another jockey taunts Hawley. "Gotta work again tonight, eh?" the jockey says. Hawley smiles and nods. He has the strangest double life in sports, except maybe for Bo Jackson. By day, Sandy Hawley is a hard-charging, mild-mannered thoroughbred jockey.

Not so long ago, 200 wins would have been only a down payment on a year for jockey Sandy Hawley. In 1971, at 21 and in just his third full year of riding, Hawley was the toast of Toronto when he rode 453 winners. That total not only led North American jockeys, it was also the second-highest number of victories in racing history, behind Bill Shoemaker's long-standing 485 in 1953. Hawley beat the record two years later, becoming the first rider to go over the 500 mark with 515.

Six mounts into his career, jockey Sandy Hawley earned his first victory when Fly Alone won the first race at Woodbine on Oct. 14, 1968. Nearly 30 years and more than 31,000 rides later, Hawley hopes to get his 6,450th win with Terremoto in the Dominion Day Stakes today at the same track outside Toronto. Terremoto, among the favorites in the 1 1/2-mile race, will be the last thoroughbred Hawley, 49, rides.

In Sunday's Budweiser-Arlington Million, Sandy Hawley is riding Spellbound, a horse who doesn't figure. About a year ago, Hawley's career as a jockey didn't figure, either. It could have been over, 18 years and more than 5,000 wins after it began, because the 38-year-old jockey had cancer. Life could have been over, too. Now, after two operations and a series of shots, Hawley is back.
