The prettiest picker

The notebook shown here jutting out of Equestrienne Jobie Arnold's riding breeches is as important to her as her saddle or stirrups. As the only professional horse race handicapper of her sex in the country, Jobie uses it to jot down likely winners for The Miami Herald and The Lexington (Ky.) Herald. At last report, Jobie, handicapping for The Miami Herald during the Florida season, was leading 15 Miami handicappers at Gulfstream.

Jobie came by her talent naturally. She spent her childhood on a Kentucky horse farm owned by her family (she even took four horses with her when she went to the University of Kentucky), and until recently she herself bred hunters and jumpers on her own farm in Florida. Moreover, unlike most handicappers, she not only picks horses, she rides them as well.
