Black jockey's journey spanned different worlds

Prejudice rode ex-Cincinnati rider out of country
Wink could have been America's greatest racing phenomenon, were it not for history. Two-time Kentucky Derby-winning jockey Jimmy Winkfield's life was a rollercoaster of fame and obscurity, enduring racism, world war, death threats, and exile.

Wink's journey is an odyssey through history, tragedy, spunk, and old-fashioned American ingenuity.
