Everything's coming up Rosie
NEW ORLEANS -- Having been there, she's focused on returning; beyond that, she's focused on returning annually and routinely. In fact, she's preternaturally focused, dialed in, a regular jewel-seeking missile. That's why Rosie Napravnik is a good bet to become the first woman ever to win the Kentucky Derby.It's going to happen, and probably soon, given the trends in racing and the sport's awakening to gender's competitive insignificance, that a woman rides a horse into the Churchill Downs winner's circle and then gracefully accepts into her arms the famed blanket of roses. And Napravnik is most likely to be the woman who does the riding and the accepting simply because she's that good, that talented and that focused.
