MURALS: DEL MAR
PEB finished a huge mural depicting the famed history of the Del Mar Race Course in celebration of its 70th birthday. What salute to Del Mar would be complete without “The Schnozz,” Jimmy Durante, as well as comedy kings W. C. Fields and Red Skelton and the suave, malevolent “gangster” George Raft?
Among horse race figures of the past are jockeys Johnny Longden, Laffit Pincay, Jr., Bill Shoemaker, Chris McCarron, Eddie Delahoussaye, George Woolf, Jerry Lambert ,and Ralph Neves. Mike Smith, Alex Solis, and Kent Desormeaux form a more recent vintage. Trainers include father-and-son Farrell and Gary Jones, Tom Smith of Seabiscuit fame, Buster Millerick, Ed Gregson, Bob Baffert, Ron McAnally, Charlie Whittingham, Robert Frankel, Jack Van Berg, Neil Drysdale, and Richard Mandella.
Among the other major racetrack figures are C.S. Howard, E.B. Johnston, Clement Hirsch, John and Betty Mabee, Rex Ellsworth, Robert and Beverly Lewis, Sid and Jenny Craig, and Allen Paulson.
