8 John and Tillie Sande homesteaded a farm in the Fairfield section; and
9 WHEREAS, young Earl Sande raced his first competitive race in the 1914
10 American Falls Fourth of July festivities and the late Burr Scott of American
11 Falls gave Sande his first break riding and took him on the "Leaky-Roof Cir-
12 cuit" to begin Sande's racing career; and
13 WHEREAS, Earl Sande compiled a 26.4% lifetime winning percentage, which is
14 the third highest of all time, and a 60.9% lifetime percentage of in-the-money
15 mounts; and
16 WHEREAS, Earl Sande became known as the "Idaho Hot Potato" and his life
17 and career are described in a new book, for which the back files of the Ameri-
18 can Falls Press were used as a research source.
19 NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT PROCLAIMED by the members of the House of Represen-
20 tatives assembled in the First Regular Session of the Fifty-eighth Idaho Leg-
21 islature, that we recognize and commend a native Idahoan who gained national
22 prominence as a jockey in the 1920s during the Golden Age of thoroughbred
23 racing, who won the 1930 Triple Crown on Gallant Fox, who was elected into the
24 Racing Hall of Fame with the first inductee class, and who ranks as the top
25 jockey of all time and Idaho's contribution to thoroughbred racing, and we
26 celebrate the late Earl Sande in 2005 as this year marks the 75th anniversary
27 of his winning the 1930 Triple Crown as well as his third Kentucky Derby and
28 fifth Belmont Stakes.
