Some people are saying Vicar’s in Trouble, running from the number two post in the 140th Kentucky Derby will be in trouble when the race takes place on Saturday.
Rosie Napravnik, born in Mendham, will be looking to go against the odds and change a few minds about that matter.
Napravnik will be riding Vicar’s in Trouble, who currently stands at 20-1 on the Kentucky Derby odds board. Vic Cangialosi writes about the Vicar in the New York Post, “Worth a wager? Appropriately named as pressure’s on Rosie to break well from rail. I’m thinking Vicar’s in Trouble.”
Only six women have ever ridden in the Kentucky Derby, and none of them has ever won, according to Think Progress. If that’s not tough enough odds, no horse has won the Kentucky Derby running from the No. 1 post position since 1986 with Ferdinand.
