Rosie Napravnik

Rosie Napravnik grew up riding in pony club and competing mostly in Eventing. Introduced to racing first through a pony club event called a “Team Chase”, she quickly realized her need for speed. After years of Eventing and competitive pony racing she made her way to Pimlico Race Course where she won her first professional race. Over a span of less than 10 years riding professionally, her racing accomplishments include winning the Kentucky Oaks in 2012 and 2014. Rosie became the highest placing female jockey in the Kentucky Derby, finishing 5th on Mylute in 2013. The pair also finished 3rd in the Preakness that year and Rosie became the only female jockey to ride in all three Triple Crown races. Rosie announced her retirement in the winners circle after winning her second Breeders’ Cup race, with Untappable in the 2014 Breeders Cup Distaff. Since retiring, Rosie has launched her own second career retraining retired racehorses for their second careers. In 2019 Rosie won the Eventing division of the Retired Racehorse Project TCA Thoroughbred Makeover aboard her horse Sanimo, who was trained in racing by her husband Joe Sharp.
