“People always think we are little skinny dudes, like little girls, and I want to show that jockeys are in great shape. I’m proud to say I’m a rider. We are very fit, from female to male. People used to argue that jockeys were the fittest athletes pound-for-pound. That idea has kind of gone away, but I take pride in fitness and staying in good shape and being healthy so I can perform at the highest level. I bet I’m a little older than most of the athletes in this issue. I’m 46, so I want to prove that I can still be in great shape and compete at the highest level. I take pride in that.”
