I'm speaking to this person on radio for the first time we've had a couple of brief phone conversations and her energy and her passion for the sport is palpable. And it doesn't take long to pick up on. And i think you'll agree once we get into the interview. Today's guest has saddled one hundred sixty three horses to date. Forty seven of those have found themselves standing in the winner's circle. That's nearly twenty nine percent for all of you who liked to hang your hat. Statistics and a further. Put that number in perspective for you. That's a higher win rate than todd. Pletcher chad brown bill. motte mark. Cassie and bob baffert and that goes along with eighty wins in the saddle during a seven year riding career to say that this lady knows a thing or two about winning races would be a pretty big understatement.
