NEW YORK — Rosie Napravnik is set to become the first female jockey to ride in all three Triple Crown races in the same year, and the first to try to win one aboard a filly.

Trainer Todd Pletcher said Thursday that Napravnik is “very, very likely” to be his rider for Unlimited Budget in the Belmont Stakes on June 8.

A final decision on whether Unlimited Budget takes on the boys in the Belmont will be made after a scheduled workout at Belmont Park over the weekend. The 3-year-old filly finished third in the Kentucky Oaks in her last race after opening her career with four victories.
