Even if this great jockey has yet to discover the sweet-smelling recipe for the Arc, there definitely is one—and Yves Saint-Martin knows it. From his distant perch at Santa Anita, Shoemaker could recite it, too. Eddie Arcaro, retired and lounging about in embroidered slippers and a smoking jacket, would probably have put it best of all, however, something like this: "Man, when you're on the best horse, don't muck around in the back of the pack in a large field. Get up just behind the pace and turn for home in the first five or six. Never count on even a great horse to do it all for you."
