Booking Rosie NapravnikRosie Napravnik, the only woman set to run in the Kentucky Derby this weekend, is considered the top female in a sport dominated by men. The past few years she has sped past her male competitors to become one of the top jockeys overall.

Female jockeys were greeted with outright rebellion and boycott when they first tried to edge into the field in the late 1960s and early 1970s.

Today, women continue to make up only a slim minority of the membership of the Lexington, Kentucky-based Jockeys’ Guild, despite the fact that women are dominating tamer sports such as show horse jumping and dressage.

On Saturday, Rosie Napravnik is slated to run Mylute, a three-year-old Colt. This is her second race as she  first ran the Derby back in 2011. She finished ninth which was the best showing for a woman since the race admitted its first female jockey in 1970.
