DAVIS FINDING STRIDE ON INNER TRACK
OZONE PARK, N.Y. – Jackie Davis is not new to Aqueduct Racetrack. She won the first race of her career at the Big A on November 5, 2008 aboard 64-1 Blue Hill Bay, and she grew up visiting the track where her father, jockey Robbie Davis, rode 1,297 of his 3,382 winners.
While Davis has ridden at Aqueduct each of the past three winters, she has been especially visible during the 2011-2012 inner track meet, with a record of 9-6-16 from 100 mounts, good for 10th in the jockey standings through Wednesday, February 15. Success comes with experience, and for Davis, experience has come at Suffolk Downs in East Boston, where she has ridden the last two meets. There, Davis’s agent is Max Hall, while Roger Sutton books her mounts locally.
