Napravnik: no diploma, 2 winners

Horse Racing


On the same day she would have graduated from high school, apprentice sensation Rosie Napravnik rode two winners yesterday at Pimlico Race Course.

"I didn't even realize they were graduating tonight," said Napravnik, who will take her GED test this summer. "I have learned so much this year."

After attending her first two years of high school in New Jersey, Napravnik spent the summer of 2004 with her sister Jazz, an assistant trainer for Pimlico-based conditioner Holly Robinson.

Immediately after her junior year at Hereford High, Napravnik began riding professionally and this year has won 71 races for $1.3 million.
