Perkinson, a 42-year old Texas native, was a Del Mar horse jockey from 1998 to 2005. According to the La Jolla Light, Perkinson entered the race to inspire women to embrace younger men that love older, established and well-balanced women.
"I feel that I can go up against any younger woman (kitten) in the game of love and war!" she states on the official Miss Cougar 2010 websites. "Confidence is not a factor for me!"
