It just wouldn't be race day without Donna Brothers! A fixture at Churchill Downs and every major racetrack in the country, Donna Brothers knows the feeling of being in the winners circle firsthand. Donna retired in 1998 as the second leading female jockey in the country by money earned after having won 1,171 races. She then brought her insider track knowledge to the masses as a on-track reporter and analyst for NBC Sports and has since covered the Kentucky Derby, Preakness Stakes, Belmont Stakes, and Breeders' Cup among many other thoroughbred horse racing events and races.
She has also covered the Hambletonian Stakes, the Rolex Three Day Event, the World Equestrian Games, the AQHA World Championship Show, and Professional Bull Riding (PBR) for that network and, additionally, still covers horse racing for TVG.
Catch Donna's unique horseback interviews in the arena Friday and Saturday at BreyerFest; and be sure join Donna and an incredible panel of industry professionals for the "Women in Racing" seminar at Noon on Saturday.
