Welcome Home Rosie (Anna)

The Baltimore Sun wrote a nice article about The Bug Boys favorite jockey Anna "Rosie" Napravnik. Our little girl has come home, and she is all grown up.

She spent most of the summer fighting for mounts up in Delaware. Napravnik has had 29 winners at Delaware Park this summer, which ranks her seventh at the track, where she has won $776,644. Rosie is now ranked 6th in the nation with 194 wins.

According to the article, Rosie did a lot of growing up this summer. She received her GED, tried to buy a house (but did not have any credit), and increased her earnings this year to 3.7 million. She has also decided to go by her more adult sounding given name of "Anna", however The Bug Boys will still scream from the rail "Come on Rosie!"

Welcome home Rosie, and good luck at the Laurel and Timonium meets!
