Loathe To Love: An Interview With Jockey Cristina Bonilla

The probabilities are very high, like nine times out of ten, when a person attends the horse races for the first time, that individual grows an instantaneous love for the sport. However, there is always that one-time the statistic fails, and surprisingly it applied to up and coming apprentice jockey, Cristina Bonilla. Still basking in the glow of her first win as a professional jockey less than three weeks ago at Evangeline Downs in Louisiana, Bonilla shares, not only that memorable and unforgettable experience, but the 30-year old also relates her whirlwind of a journey from loathing the sport the first time she laid eyes on it, to achieving one of her goals of becoming a rider and competing daily in the sport of throughbred racing.
