Anthony Hamilton: Inducted in 2012 

Racer Anthony Hamilton was a force to be reckoned with during his heyday as a jockey in the late 19th century. Igniting the race track at age 15, Hamilton was dubbed the “Black Demon” by onlookers and went on to dominate events such as the Twin City Handicap, thanks to his superior strength and racing intuition. Hamilton later took his thoroughbred racing experiences and success overseas, entering as a jockey in countries like Hungary, Russia and Austria before he died in 1904. Hamilton went down in history as the only Black American to hold victories in the New York Handicap Triple: the Metropolitan Handicap, the Suburban Handicap and the Brooklyn Invitational Stakes.
