Jockey Rosie Napravnik to be honored at Churchill

Rosie Napravnik will be honored at Churchill Downs on Saturday, two weeks after the jockey surprised the racing world by announcing her retirement at the Breeders’ Cup because she is pregnant. The day’s sixth race has been dubbed “The Run for Rosie,” and she will be feted in the winner’s circle afterward. The jockey, 26, is expecting her first child with husband Joe Sharp in June. He is a trainer at Churchill, where Napravnik became the first female rider to win the $1 million Kentucky Oaks in 2012. She won the race again this year. Napravnik won the $2 million Breeders’ Cup Distaff with Untapable on Oct. 31 and retired the next day. – Associated Press
