Edward "Snapper" Garrison was a 19th-century American jockey known for his spectacular come-from-behind wins. During his 16-year riding career, he won nearly 700 races. Garrison rode many great horses, including Montana, Tammany and Firenze and was known for coming off the pace. In fact, his riding style had so captured the attention of the public that people had begun using the term "Garrison finish" for any victory in which the winner comes from behind. The term was so often used that it appears in the Merriam-Webster Dictionary. Edward Snapper Garrison was inducted into the National Thoroughbred Racing Hall of Fame in 1955, the first year of inductions.
