Atkinson, Theodore Frederick

▪ 2006

      American jockey (b. June 17, 1916, Toronto, Ont.—d. May 5, 2005, Beaver Dam, Va.), became the first jockey to win more than a million dollars in earnings in a single season (1946). Atkinson began riding professionally at age 21, and his career lasted from 1938 to 1959. He rode War Relic to an upset victory over Triple Crown winner Whirlaway in 1941, but his best mount was Tom Fool, which he rode to Horse of the Year honours in 1953. Atkinson was elected to the National Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame in 1957.
