Meet retired Hall of Fame thoroughbred jockey Julie Krone.

In 1987, Krone became the first woman to win a riding title at a major track, topping the standings at Monmouth, Meadowlands, and Atlantic City. Working primarily in New York, she continued to rank among the best and became a fan favorite.

In 1993, Krone became the first woman to win a Triple Crown race when she piloted Colonial Affair to victory in the Belmont Stakes. Krone’s other achievements include winning 12 of 16 races in a three-day period and two five-win days at Fair Grounds in her final season. She also became the first woman to win a Breeders’ Cup race in 2003 when she won the Juvenile Fillies aboard Halfbridled.

In 2003 Julie Krone rode Candy Ride, in the Pacific Classic at the Del Mar Race Track, to the Winners Circle. Their record time still holds the track record today.
