A woman will be riding in the Kentucky Derby

Rosemary Homeister will be rewarded with a ride in the Kentucky Derby aboard Supah Blitz.Homeister, one of the leading jockeys in south Florida the past few years, will be the fifth woman in 129 years to ride in the Derby. She follows Julie Krone (1992, 1995), Andrea Seefeldt (1991), Patricia Cooksey (1984) and Diane Crump (1970). The best finish was 11th by Krone aboard Suave Prospect in 1995 and Cooksey on So Vague in 1984.Homeister, 30, has a good chance to better that with the hard-running Supah Blitz, a longshot in the 17-horse field. >>Full story...
