Dialogue from my play “Jockey Jim” by Larry Muhammad.

I play Jimmy Winkfield’s wife, Lydia de Minkiwitz, a Russian Baroness! This dialogue is from when we move to the US and are not doing very well. I’m doing my best Russian accent while still trying to be intelligible at the same time hahaha.

James Winkfield was the last of the African American great jockeys, he won the Kentucky Derby in 1901 and 1902! But after his retirement he was largely forgotten. A fascinating story!
