Former Jockey Diane Crump is Featured in a New Book

Virginia-based Diane Crump is the story behind a new book that was released earlier this year.  She was the first woman jockey and the first woman to ride a horse in the Kentucky Derby. Based near Middleburg, she now runs a successful business marketing horses to prospective buyers and I looked at a horse she was marketing a few years back. You can see her site here.  She is a true horse person and is featured in this article in the New York Times.  While I have not read the book, it's going on my list.  She is truly an inspiration much like Kathy Kusner did for the show jumping and steeplechasing world.
