Dewey's middle name

Despite records for both first and second marriages (and other records) showing Dewey's middle name as WILFRED, his headstone and a handful of other records have it as "Wilford".  I am going by what I was told as a child: WILFRED.

My Jockey Uncle

Idaho

  As a teen, Uncle Dewey was given work with Idaho horse owner/trainer James Nazworthy.  He was working on becoming a full-fledged jockey when, in his final race as an apprentice rider, he had a nearly fatal accident that left him mentally and physically unable to ride again.  He rode in the races alongside the greats BILL SHOEMAKER and EDDIE ARCARO.  He also personally knew Idaho jockey, GARY STEVENS.

   I have several photos of his winning races....including the race just before his accident race on Labor Day weekend in 1956.
