New mother Homeister returns to saddle

Rosemary Homeister Jr., the second-leading female jockey all time in North America, will ride her first race since she became a mother when she climbs aboard Huxley Winner in the ninth race Wednesday at Churchill Downs.

Homeister, 39, has been away more than eight months since she abruptly quit riding at the Tampa Bay Downs meet in early February when revealing she was expecting her first child. She gave birth to her daughter, Victoria Rose, on Aug. 21 in Tampa. Homeister’s boyfriend, fellow jockey Irwin Rosendo, is the father.
