Where Is She Now?
Julie Krone, the winningest woman jockey in the world, hung up her tack in April, 1999, after establishing her place in sports history. Two traumatic injuries, in 1993 and 1995, had sapped from Krone the love of speed she had nurtured since she was a child. But in October, 2000, Krone made an appearance in Lexington, Kentucky, piloting the harness racer Moni Maker to a new world-record finish in a race for trotters-under-saddle. And in October, 2002, the Hall of Fame inductee announced her return to thoroughbred racing. After three and a half years of retirement, Krone rode Justly Royal at Santa Anita Park on November 1, 2002.
