Hurd, Babe(died: 1928)
Babe Hurd won the Kentucky Derby in 1882 aboard Apollo. He was also a noted steeplechase rider. Hurd was born in Texas, died at the Longridge Farm in Bourbon County, and was buried in Chicago. He had lived in Chicago in 1892 according to his voter registration information, he was working at the Garfield Park Race Track. His death certificate has that Hurd was 48 years old when he died, which would mean that he was born in 1880, though that is highly unlikely given that he won the the Kentucky Derby in 1882.
