Twenty-five years ago, Patti "PJ" Cooksey arrived at Pimlico as the first
female jockey to ride in its signature race, the Preakness S. (G1).
Now 52 and living in Kentucky, Cooksey returns to Baltimore this week to
break new ground again in the inaugural Lady Legends for the Cure Race, the
first pari-mutuel race featuring retired female jockeys, on Friday.
