While much of the racing world is focused on Calvin Borel’s possible sweep of the Triple Crown with multiple horses, Mid-Atlantic based jockey Jenna Joubert of New Prague, MN registered an uncommon riding triple of her own on May 14, tallying wins at three different racetracks in that single day.
Joubert started things off with a victory aboard Chloe’s Song in the second race at Pimlico for trainer Dane Kobiskie. Joubert then traveled to Penn National where she guided Prove Mcguilty to win that track’s opening race, again for trainer Kobiskie. Then it was back in her car for a ride to Charles Town and yet another victory, this time on Cover My Six in the ninth race for trainer Justin Nixon.
While rare, Joubert’s feat is not unprecedented. It was last accomplished by fellow Mid-Atlantic jockey Jonathan Joyce who rode winners at Pimlico, Delaware Park and Penn National on August 20, 2005.
