Andria Terrill is riding at Suffolk this season. She was not in yesterday's 3rd, though (so how's that for cool -- it didn't even take Suffolk's entire female jockey colony to make more than half the field.)
When Vicky Baze was riding at Suffolk last month, the women’s jocks’ room contained the fourth-, fifth- and sixth-winningest female riders of all time and three of the top four active women jockeys.
According to Davis, the smaller quarters of the women’s jockeys’ room is a challenge.
“It’s bigger than most girls’ rooms I’ve been in, but it’s not that big. And it’s not easy because we are all so overly competitive,” she said. “We keep it light and try to look out for each other. Even though we’re competing and even through there’s a bunch of us, we are still a minority and we realize we need to stick together.”
Having the leading jockey in the same locker room has also been an asset to Davis.
“It’s an honor to be successfully competing like this, especially with someone like Tammi,” she said. “She’s one of the strongest riders I’ve ever seen, and I’ve learned so much just watching her and listening to her advice.”
Jackie was just thrown from her mount when the horse to her inside came out hard at the 1/4 pole. She was talking and it looked like she was moving her arms and legs, but she went down hard. Here's hoping all will be fine.
Shockingly, the horse (who went a$$ over teakettle)got right up and looked fine running off the track
