American jockey

The winningest woman jockey in thoroughbred racing history, Julie Krone has shattered records throughout her two-decade career, including having the distinction of being the first woman to ride to the winner's circle in a Triple Crown race. But records were not the only things shattered in the course of Krone's streak. She has suffered career-threatening injuries, most notably a smashed ankle in a 1993 on-track spill that could have ended her riding or even taken her life.
