Female jockey to ride for history

  • Anna Rose Napravnik began her career by hiding her gender since she thought it would be better for her if people didn't notice a female name in the world of horse racing. 

    However, it's been nine years since then and the star is now set to make history and become the first female to have ever ridden a Kentucky Derby winner. 

    Media reports indicate that the 26-year-old is facing a challenge since her horse drew the No. 1 position in the starting gate. "He gets out of that gate fast every single time," she said. 

    Ken and Sarah Ramsey own Vicar's In Trouble and Ken mentioned that Rose knows what to do since she "has ridden him in all of his races."
