Posting in the Trot by swo8 Blues Jazz from the album Osaka Time in iTunes

This post is a request from Gert Loveday, Fun with Books, and dedicated to Michelle Payne, the first woman to win Australia’s most famous horse race, the Melbourne Cup. Michelle’s comment to those who don’t rate women as jockeys (i.e. most of the industry) can “get stuffed”. Way to go Michelle!

  1. As you may know Leslie, we live in Lexington, Kentucky, the self-proclaimed horse capital of the world. We’ve just finished Keeneland Racetrack’s fall meet and the Breeder’s Cup, so we’ve had a big dose of horse racing. As you say, there aren’t too many female jocks, but whenever we see one riding, we always put down a couple of bucks to win. This year, a female trainer (even more rare than jockies) had a big contender in the Breeder’s Cup. Slowly but surely knocking on the glass ceiling. ~James
