Rosie Napravnik, who recently began riding
full-time in New York,
catapulted herself into the top 10 in the Aqueduct Racetrack jockey standings
by winning four races on Saturday.
Napravnik first two victories came aboard horses trained by Todd
Pletcher, who had three winners on the card. Napravnik and Pletcher teamed up
to win race 2 with R King of the Road ($3.60), and then added another score in
race 5 with Street Brawl ($12.60).
Later on the card, Napravnik bookended the $250,000 Guaranteed Late
Pick 4 by upsetting race 7 with Mutiny ($46.80) for trainer Dominic Galluscio
and capturing race 10 with Gunman ($8.70) for trainer Tony Dutrow.
Napravnik, who missed the first 11 days of the Aqueduct spring meet as
she wrapped up her second straight Fair Grounds riding title, is tied for
seventh in the Big A rider standings with eight victories. She began riding at
Aqueduct on April 6 and had previously wintered in New York in 2008-09 and 2009-10.
