<P>30 MAY 2014 Q-RACING JOURNAL Y YES, SHES RETURNED TO RIDE RACES. NO, SHES NOT RETURNING torace riding. Well, yes and no, said Tami Purcell-Burkland, American Quarter Horse racings most successful female jockey, who retired in 2006. A member of the Texas Racing Hall of Fame, Tami is scheduled to ride the Mothers Day Stakes on May 10 at Delta Downs and an invitational Thoroughbred race at Pimlico Race Course in Baltimore on May 16, which is the day of the Black-Eyed Susan Stakes and the day before the Preakness Stakes. Both events are to raise awareness of and to support research for breast cancer. How this all started out, I was called to ride at Pimlico on the Black-Eyed Susan Day, Purcell-Burkland said. Its a Thoroughbred race, its for a good cause, and eight ladies were invited – all retired women jockeys. This is their fifth year to do it and its been all strictly Thoroughbred riders. Im the first Quarter Horse woman rider to be invited. Then I got a call from Jamie Jamison at Delta Downs. He said ‘Tami, we saw you were doing this, we want to do some- thing, so we had an idea. The idea was for me to ride Louisana Corona, who is out of Corona Cash, who I won the All American on, in the Mothers Day Stakes at Delta. Ill be wearing pink silks with the (breast cancer) ribbon on them, and Ill carry the name of anybody wanting to sign those silks in memory of someone or as a survivor. At first, it was just going to be ‘come up and meet me, but I said, ‘Lets carry the names and take them for a ride. Then it just took off, she said. I just got back from Keeneland last week, where I did an autograph session with women jockeys, some of the most famous female riders of significance, where we helped bring awareness and raised money to help those women on the backside who dont have money to get screened and taken care of. That last reference is to an event at Keeneland Racecourse in Lexington, Kentucky, which on April 13 hosted Ladies of the Turf to honor 21 retired and active female jockeys, including those who were first allowed to ride in 1969 and some of the most accomplished members of their profession. Among the women who were there, in addition to Purcell- Burkland, were Thoroughbred Hall of Famer Julie Krone; Kathy Kusner, the first woman licensed to ride; Diane Crump, the first woman to ride against men and the first to ride in the Kentucky Derby; Barbara Jo Rubin, the first to win a recog- nized race; and Rosie Napravnik, the first female leading rider at Keeneland. The days events included a presentation and video tribute following the second race, which was won by Napravnik. The women also participated in an autograph session featuring a commemorative poster created by noted cartoonist Peb. Proceeds from the sale of the poster raised $1,000 for Horses and Hope and the Permanently Disabled Jockeys Fund. Keenelands recognition of the Ladies of the Turf was part of Horses and Hope Pink Day, an initiative by Kentucky First Lady Jane Beshear to raise awareness of breast cancer among women working in the Bluegrass States horse industry. The wife of Kentucky Gov. Steven Beshear participated in a lunch for survivors at the Keeneland Sales Pavilion, and participants enjoyed afternoon activities at the track. Still in the Saddle IN A CAREER THAT STRETCHED 25 YEARS BEGINNING IN 1981, Purcell-Burkland rode the earners of $12,213,763 and 1,743 winners in 9,475 Quarter Horse races. Among her wins were scores in 17 Grade 1 events, including the two biggest events in Quarter Horse racing. In 1996, Purcell-Burkland rode that years world champion, Dashing Folly, to win the Champion of Champions (G1) and nine months later rode that years champion 2-year-old, Corona Cash, to win the All American Futurity, becoming the first jockey to ride the winners of the two classic races in the period of a year. Winning the All American also made her the first TPurcell tto the tr By Richard Chamberlain Tami In 1997, Corona Cash, Tami Purcell and Donna McArthur made history in the All American Futurity.
