Interesting article on a possible replacement for Chantal around here, Cheryl Charlton. Most interesting quotes:

Quote:
During this meet, she will become the first female to finish as the leading thoroughbred rider at Los Alamitos Race Course. She has 84 victories. The next closest jockey is 26 wins back.

Charlton, who has won 32 percent of her thoroughbred starts, also has had success on quarter horses, which make up the majority of Los Al's races.

Now add this: It's possible – Los Alamitos officials aren't entirely sure – that Charlton will be the first woman jockey during any thoroughbred meet to be the leading rider at any track in Southern California.
Will be interesting to see if she moves up to the big leagues soon
