Rosie Napravnik broke numerous records as a jockey; including becoming the only female to win the Kentucky Oaks, not once but twice, and the only female jockey to win two Breeders' Cup Races.

Now that she's retired, Napravnik talks to Horse Capital Reporter Samantha Lederman about her return to her roots as an eventing rider.
