Criquette Head-Maarek

On February 1, Criquette Head-Maarek will retire, concluding one of the greatest careers any trainer has ever had. A member of what one may call France’s first family of racing, she has won the Arc de Triomphe three times, established herself at a time when few thought a female could rise to the top ranks of the French trainer’s standings and on two occasions beat life-threatening illnesses. Head-Maarek is this week’s guest on the Thoroughbred Daily News podcast, brought to you by Taylor Made.
