(November 13, 1898 – August 19, 1968) was an American Hall of Fame jockey and thoroughbred horse trainer.

Born in Groton, South Dakota, Earl Sande started out as a bronco buster in the early 1900's but then became a successful American quarter horse rider before switching to thoroughbred horse racing in 1918. Sande joined Cal Shilling and Johnny Loftus as a contract rider for Commander J. K. L. Ross. In 1919, he tied an American record with six wins on a single racecard at Havre de Grace Racetrack. He went on to ride for noted owners such as Harry F. Sinclair, and Samuel D. Riddle and was the leading money-winning jockey in the United States in 1921, 1923, and again in 1927. He won both the Belmont Stakes five times and the Jockey Club Gold Cup on four occasions, the Kentucky Derby three times and the Preakness Stakes once. In 1923 he won 39 stakes races for Harry F. Sinclair's Rancocas Stable, ten of which were on ultimate Horse of the Year winner Zev, including the Kentucky Derby, Belmont Stakes, and a match race against England's Epsom Derby winner Papyrus. Sande's most famous wins came aboard Gallant Fox in 1930 when he won the U.S. Triple Crown.

Sande's fame was such that he was immortalized in a number of poems by Damon Runyon. Following his retirement in 1932, Earl Sande remained in the industry as a trainer. In 1938 he was the United States leading trainer and by the mid 1940s owned and operated his own racing stable.

In 1955, Earl Sande was inducted into the National Museum of Racing and Hall of Fame. His life story was told in the 2004 book by Richard J. Maturi titled "Triple Crown Winner: The Earl Sande Saga" (ISBN 0-9607298-5-2).

Earl Sande died in 1968 in a Jacksonville, Oregon nursing home.

 

"Arcaro, Saunders, Shoemaker, all those guys told me Sande was the guy.
 He was the greatest rider of his time ....a legend of his time, in the golden era of American racing."
--Scott Wells, Remington Park GM AP article
       

"Few jockeys were as good as Sande and certainly nobody was ever better."
--Race Historian Tom Gilcoyne

 

Sloan, they tell me, could ride 'em;
Maher, too, was a bird.
Bullman a guy to guide 'em—
Never much worse than third.
Them was the old time jockeys;
Now when I want to win.
Gimme a handy
Guy like Sande
Ridin' them hosses in.

Damon Runyon, New York City, circa 1923
