Napravnik on pace for Krone's records
When Julie Krone walked away from the game in 2004 it appeared that she took with her any chance that a female jockey would ever win the Kentucky Derby. Krone never won a Derby, but she could have. Unique among all female riders at the time, she was often given the opportunity to ride some of the most talented horses in the sport and won many prestigious races, among them the Belmont Stakes and a Breeders' Cup race.
