Jockey takes a dive at Hollywood Park

Nov. 5, 1986: Jockey Jack Kaenel flips off his mount, 3-year-old Years of Fun, after leaving the starting gate in the second race on opening day at Hollywood Park.

Kaenel was only shaken up and Years of Fun was not seriously injured.

This photo by former Los Angeles Times staff photographer Steve Dykes was the lead image on the next day’s sports section front.
