James W. Maloney Exhibit
This exhibit is located on the second floor of the Hall of Fame and features photos and trophies won by Maloney, a National Racing Hall of Fame trainer.
Maloney followed in the footsteps of his father who was also a trainer. He quickly developed a reputation as a patient trainer, particularly skilled with distaffers. Among his top distaffers for owner William Haggin Perry were Champions Lamb Chop and Gamely.
For three consecutive years, Maloney owned the Vanity Handicap, where he sent out Desert Love, Gamely, and Desert Law to victory. He also won two Strub Stakes, with Duel and Dignitas, and two Santa Anita Derbies, with Boldnesian and Alley Fighter.
James W. Maloney was inducted into the National Racing Hall of Fame in 1989. He passed away in 1984.
