Her Name is Rio


A day after female apprentice Jockey Jackie Davis gets her first win aboard a 64-1 shot, fellow female apprentice Jockey Maylan Studart picks up a win in the 2nd on the dirt at Aqueduct aboard Wood Winner returning $9.80.

Studart also picked up 2nd place in the 1st race today at the Big A. Studart is only 19 years old, hailing from Rio De Janeiro, Brazil. She made her United States debut this summer at Calder Race Course. Studart has already picked up a Stakes win, winning aboard Got Clearance in the $60,000 Lindsay Frolic Stakes for two-year-old fillies at Calder Race Course. With Davis and Studart expected to pick up more mounts this winter at the Big A, this should be fun watching these 2 young Jockeys ply their trade.

You go girls! I'm also keeping an eye on Chantal Sutherland, currently at Hollywood Park.

Mary-Loved watching Chantal when she raced this summer at Saratoga-we miss her here on the East Coast.

Surprised you didn't mention Studart's longshot winner on opening day. Slightly lower price than Davis', but not by much.

Sutherland raced in Canada this summer--she was big in Saratoga a couple of years ago, but gave up on the NY circuit and has been racing--and doing well--in Canada and California since.

anon-thanks for correction on Sutherland.

Studarts opening day longshot winner was at odds of 51-1 when she was aboard Decorated Court in the seventh race at the Big A.

Winston...not really said...

She dances on the sand...
