The three jockeys who dueled in the inaugural 1984 Breeders’ Cup Classic – Angel Cordero, Jr., Pat Day and Laffit Pincay, Jr. – are on a special tour with a stop scheduled this week at Wynn Las Vegas.

The Breeders Cup Legends are touring the country, making stops at the nation’s top race tracks. "We’re fortunate enough to be their last stop before they hit Santa Anita for the Breeders Cup," said Wynn race and sports director John Avello. Avello added the jockeys will be in the race book on Thursday, from noon to 3 p.m.

"They’ll be able to chat about their experiences, field questions and then spend about an hour meeting-and-greeting and signing autographs," Avello said.
