Kendrick Carmouche: For your consideration 

As The First Kentucky Derby notes the decline in the number of Black jockeys today, Kendrick Carmouche is the rare Black jockey carrying on the legacy. The Louisiana native began riding horses with his family but has since gone on to be dubbed the best rider in Philadelphia after setting an amazing four-year win streak at the former Philadelphia Park. As of 2011, Carmouche had 2,000 wins to his name and today he boasts over three thousand first-place finishes. Carmouche joined his predecessors and competed in the Kentucky Derby for the first time in 2021, becoming the first Black jockey to compete since 2013. It’s only right that the Racing Hall of Fame put Carmouche in its ranks as he continues to dominate competitions and forge more Black history in the sport.
