Jockey Zoe Cadman Retires
STICKNEY, IL -- Local Chicago rider and past Hawthorne riding champion Zoe Cadman hung up her tack today as she has retired from riding. Cadman, 29, was recently married to jockey Larry Sterling Jr. this past winter.
Cadman began her riding career at Arlington Park in 2000, winning aboard her first mount, Prize and Joy on June 10. She became the first female rider in Chicago history to win a meet riding title when she won the spring 2001 Hawthorne title, guiding home 36 winners for the meet. Zoe also holds the distinction of being the all-time leading female rider at Arlington, surpassing Donna Barton in 2002.
This year, Zoe had won a pair of races from 12 starts during the spring National Jockey Club at Hawthorne meet.
