At Hialeah on February 26, 1938, Lawrin won the Flamingo approximately two months prior to winning the Kentucky Derby. The unusual fact was that Arcaro won five races on the card but was not aboard </span><span style="line-height: 115%; color: #4f4f4f;">the </span><span style="line-height: 115%; color: #383838;">Flamingo winner, although he did win the Derby on Lawrin!

The race was limited to only black jockeys. Unfortunately, this was a popular track at the time <span style="letter-spacing: -0.05pt;">which followed</span> <span style="letter-spacing: -0.05pt;">one of worst</span> <span style="letter-spacing: -0.05pt;">racing </span>scandals in the Bay Area during the 1890s.
