Horse slaughter in Illinois
June 10, 2000 marked Zoe Cadman's first ride, and also her first win. She piloted Prize and Joy to a 1 3/4 length win at Arlington International Racecourse.
June 10, 2001 marked Zoe Cadman's first riding championship, as she bested defending champ Chris Emigh with 36 to 33 wins at Hawthorne.
Zoe is now the first woman to win a jockey championship in Chicago. She also picked up her first stakes victory aboard Where's Taylor in the Sun Beau Stakes.
After a good start in 2000 at Arlington, Zoe was injured during a starting gate accident, and ended up being off for five weeks during July and August. But on September 16, Zoe scored her first riding triple, winning the 4th, 5th and 6th races at Arlington. She almost made it four in a row, finishing second in the 7th race.
After Arlington closed, Zoe moved to Hawthorne. For most of the meet, she was in a tight race with Chris Emigh for the jockey title. After several days were lost to weather at the end of December, Zoe still faced a 5-day suspension with time running out. Larry Sterling staged a strong finish to pass her for second place.
After Hawthorne closed, Zoe rode at the Fair Grounds, winning 13 of 161 races. During the Sportsman's meet earlier this spring, Zoe won 22 of 181 races, for 7th place.
