My husband's family

How many times have you previously qualified for the DRF/NTRA NHC?

What is your most memorable horse racing experience?
 In my very first tournament I played I'll Have Another at 40-1 and that win helped me qualify for the following tournament.

Do you have any interesting hobbies, experiences or past accomplishments that others might find unique or interesting?
 I love to ride dirt bikes. Rescuing my Chihuahua, Buddy, was a big accomplishment. He was involved a traumatic dog attack and was not supposed to survive.
