Who is your FAVORITE Female reporting on racing?

I find it interesting the perception of men and women when deciding on who their favorite female anything is on TV. As a woman the voice and if it holds my attention is major. What they look like, I could care less. Speak up! This is interesting. I hate to listen a woman that never changes her tone on TV. UGH! How boring. Christina holds my attention and at least gets to move around and interview different people.

Jessica for sure.

She has a real quirkiness to her voice that grabs my attention.

I was going to vote the same way, even though I'm not sure I've ever heard her voice

Jessica is number 1. Joanne is number 2. They have excellent knowledge, great voices and they LOOK GREAT. Yes, I'm a man, yes, this is who we are, yes, if you don't get it, nobody asked you to get it.

Never really gave it much thought till this post but most of the females do a pretty good job compared to some of their male counterparts.

I really do like Christina Olivares interviews with the trainers and jockeys she is headed for greener pastures.
