Donna Brothers and Diane Crump among ‘Trailblazing Horsewomen: Racing Edition’ livestream speakers – Horse Racing News



StreamHorseTV will welcome additional special guests on the roster for the Pioneer Riders: Race Edition, a 90-minute live stream featuring conversations with extraordinary women in horse racing about the past, present and future of women in the industry. The event is brought to you by Starlight/StarLadies Racing.

NBC equine sports analyst and former jockey Donna Brothers, trailblazing jockey Diane Crump, Hall of Fame trainer Janet Elliot, race’s winningest female jockey and Hall of Famer Julie Krone, and steeplechase veteran Jo Motion will be joined by Patti Barton – America’s top female jockey from 1972 until four years after her retirement in 1984 (and dam of Donna Brothers).

And the founders of Thoroughbred Ladies Cocktail Club – Katie Taylor of Taylor Made Sales and Carrie Brogden of Machmer Hall Farm – will bring viewers an insider discussion aimed at the next generation of young women looking to get into – and stay – in the business. Taylor and Brogden created the Thoroughbred Ladies Cocktail Club to bring women in the equestrian industry together in a place where they can be themselves without the pressures, rules and agendas.

The collective experience of our distinguished guests spans more than three-quarters of a century, and you won’t want to miss their stories, wisdom and advice.

We will salute 2022’s theme, #BreaktheBias, embracing the path to breakthroughs for future generations to find opportunity in the industry.

Viewers are encouraged to comment and ask your questions for our Trailblazers!

Tune in to hear about Crump’s historic first women’s race in the Kentucky Derby, Elliot’s record-breaking run to surpass his former boss in wins, Krone’s unrivaled competitive advantage, Motion’s rise to riding as a ‘stable boy’ in wartime England, working alongside notable names in steeplechase and the Brothers’ journey from jockey to TV analyst, the story behind StarLadies Racing and why it wrote its delivered, Inside Track: An Insider’s Guide to Horse Racing.

About the Pioneer Riders

The Racing Edition event marks the second installment of Trailblazing Horsewomen, a program launched by StreamHorseTV Chief Content Officer Natalie Mayrath in 2021 as a celebratory gathering for horse lovers to learn and be inspired by groundbreaking women in the industry. Mayrath is a former digital producer on Women and Money for Yahoo Finance and producer of “The Vanguard,” an Emmy-nominated documentary series about influential women in media.

“After the overwhelmingly positive response to the first Trailblazing Horsewomen event, we knew we needed to continue these conversations, which align strongly with our mission to build an inclusive community through equestrian sports. You will find that this group of exceptional women are bound together by their ultimate passion for horses and collectively they have spent decades on the front lines, literally paving the way for others to follow, which is what this show is all about.
