NEW YORK - Thoroughbred horse racing may have found their version of Danica Patrick.
Maylan Studart, a sexy 19-year-old horse jockey from Rio De Janeiro is racking up a load of victories and turning a few heads in the process.
Since winning the $50,000 Lindsay Stakes race at Calder Race Track late last year, guiding Got Clearance to the finish line in record time, the attractive competitor has generated quite the fan base.
Like Danica, after joining a male-dominated sport, the hot Brazilian has many fans awaiting the horse racing industry to market their sexy jockey as the IRL marketed Danica.
Maylan was a slam-dunk pick to join our other babes in the Sports Climax Hottest Female Athletes Gallery.
The young Brazilian seems to be taking it all in stride and her enthusiasm is evident, “Horse racing is in my blood, it’s my addiction and I can’t run away from it.
I’ve been involved with horses since I was four-years-old with jumping competition.”
Still adjusting to the intense competition and physical challenges of her sport, in November 2008 Studart brought home ‘Decorated Court’ at Aqueduct but took a spill that same week when she was thrown from ‘River of Dreams’ at Meadowlands race track.
Studart’s most recent wins include a Valentine’s Day 2009 victory aboard ‘Spa Princess’ in the 6th race and bringing home ‘Trillion’ on February 16, both victory rides at Aqueduct race track.
In a recent interview, when asked if it is tough riding against the guys, she responded with a shy laugh, “No not at all it’s something every woman does in this world, I mean, out on the track, it’s ‘Every man for himself’.”
