The National Museum of Racing is introduced its newest hall of fame members Friday morning.
They include trainers Roger Attfield and Robert Wheeler, along with Jockey John Velazquez, and two racehorses.
Velazquez has won more than 48,000 races in his career, including the 2011 Kentucky Derby.
The late Anthony Hamilton is also being honored. He led the nation in winning percentage in 1891.
Johnny V has earned 22 riding titles at Aqueduct, Belmont, and Saratoga.
He rode the winning horse in this year's Belmont Stakes and last year's Kentucky Derby.
But he had a hard time addressing the crowd at Friday's induction ceremony in Saratoga Springs.
Mark Mulholland reported live from the track.
