Only three months in, the 25-year-old has already notched up 85 wins since the start of the year.

Napravnik galloped into first place in the jockey rankings, ahead of the iconic Angelino Russel Baze, a man with almost 12,000 wins to his name.

The American is picking up from where she left off in a remarkable 2012 season, which saw her take home the Kentucky Oaks and then the Breeder’s Cup Juvenile at Santa Anita.
