St. Billy Preston of Hollywood Park

For more than four decades, St. Billy was known to racing fans all over California as always eager to initiate the novices located in the lower grandstands. (He never set foot in the Turf Club.) Billy served his flock, while guided by the Holy Trinity: Win, Place, and Show. He created a virtual army of Pari-mutuel Party Revelers. On May 21st, 1964, at Bay Meadows Racecourse, Billy Preston presented his “pick six” winners to a newcomer and disappeared into a spray of green mist. Twenty-two people witnessed the ascension.
