I reckon if Julie likes the new title then I shouldn't complain.
When they need a top-off shot from the back, Joy Scott could double.
Julie Krone is the best female jockey!! She's a legend too!! I had a pleasure of seeing Julie when she was here in CA and she was an amazing rider. If she hadn't got injured she would've been the top Southern California Rider in 2004. I wished she stuck around longer but lucky to have seen her though. Without her, there wouldn't be no Rosemary Homeister Jr., Chantal Sutherland, Emma Jayne Wilson and Rosie Napravnik to name a few.
Avg. Earnings Per Start: $4,209
It sure would be great if there's a movie about her!! She broke barriers. She's the only woman to win a riding title at a major racetrack (i.e. Gulfstream and Belmont), first woman jockey to win a Triple Crown (Belmont Stakes) and Breeders Cup race (Juvenile Fillies).
Remember this postcard after one of her many recoveries? Great shot!
