2012 Kentucky Oaks Results: Believe You Can Wins, Rosie Napravnik Rides Into History

Believe You Can proved to be a fitting name for the winning horse in the Kentucky Oaks on Friday night. Jockey Rosie Napravnik rode the horse to a win in the $1 million Grade 1 Kentucky Oaks. With the win, Napravnik became the first female jockey to win the race in its 138-year history.

Napravnik's horse battled down the stretch with Broadway's Alibi, ridden by John Velazquez, before pulling away inside the final furlong. Broadway's Alibi finished second, and Grace Hall, morning line and post time favorite, came in third.

Believe You Can is a three-year-old filly by Proud Citizen out of an El Prado (IRE) mare (El Fasto) trained by Larry Jones and owned by former Kentucky Governor Brereton Jones.
