Great story of a rider's life. Julie admits to all her mistakes and strengths. She is a determined rider who just wanted to ride horses. While she spent most of her riding life in New Jersey at the Meadowlands and Monmouth Racetracks she is best known as the first female to win the Belmont Stakes. Thi sbiography is her story of coming back from injuries sustained on the track. With her fighting spirit I am sure we will hear from her again.
