Antley, Chris

▪ 2001

      American jockey (b. Jan. 6, 1966, Fort Lauderdale, Fla.—found dead Dec. 2, 2000, Pasadena, Calif.), won a total of 3,480 races in his career, including the Kentucky Derby in 1991 and 1999. Antley quickly established himself as one of the world's leading jockeys after making his professional debut in 1985; two years later, he became the first jockey ever to win nine races in a single day. In 1999 he rode Charismatic to victory in the Preakness Stakes as well as in the Kentucky Derby but fell short of capturing the Triple Crown when Charismatic pulled up lame and finished third in the Belmont Stakes. Antley was found dead in his home after suffering what authorities described as a severe head trauma probably caused by falling down while under the influence of drugs.
