Bye Bye Rosie

Jockey Anna "Rosie" Napravnik has announced that she will be leaving the Maryland jockey colony for greener (money green) pastures in Delaware. Napravnik, who has been sidelined for the last 10 weeks with a back injury, will return to riding in about a month. When she returns, things will look a whole lot different. First, she has hired a new agent. Super agent Steve Rushing (has represented Edgar Prado, Ramon Dominguez, etc.) will replace current agent John Faltynski.

I guess Rosie jumped on the opportunity to ride for bigger names and more money. Delaware seems to be the next logical step for her career. From her centralized location, she could ride at Philly Park, Delaware, and also Maryland. We wish her the best, and hope to see her elevate her game to the next level.

With top rider Napravnik gone, I wonder if Jeremy Rose will plant more permanent roots her in Maryland?
