Comments: 3  | Leave A Comment

Rosie Napravnik, also bidding to make history as the first woman jockey ever to win the world’s biggest horse race, finished sixth aboard Mylute. Rosie did come away with the highest finish by a female rider. Two years ago she placed ninth in the Derby.

The ratings were up 16% from last year. Pre-race figures were also boosted in NBC’s coverage spanning 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. ET.

Winning thoroughbred Orb will next chase the Triple Crown at the Preakness Stakes on May 18.
