Yala Enki...worth a flyer.
Other female jockey..
I'll take a more conservative approach with Burrows Saint.
Proper stayers indeed. 4 miles 2 fs & 74 yards!
Rachel Blackmore becomes the first female to win the race.Minella times leads an Irish 1,2,3,4,5 finish
I ended up missing the race..will have to catch it on replay..
Hunt the hare and turn it the down
The Rocky Road and all the ways
Wak fo la dida
The Long Mile had to be euthanized after sustaining an injury
If you haven't seen it yet:
The winner is easy to spot the whole way, look for the green and yellow silks (looks like the Bob and Beverly Lewis colors), green cap with a big white star. No other jockey has a big white star on the helmet so you can pick Rachael Blackmore in the pack. Winner was close to the pace most of the way and looked to save ground (don't know if that matters as much on this course, but she was never parked out).
Yes...very well known and famous colors....fo sho.
Thanks for the replay..
She rode a really intelligent race & she had the horse. In her words:
“He was just incredible, he jumped beautifully. I was trying to wait for as long as I could - when we jumped the last and I asked him for a bit, he was there. It’s just incredible. I don’t feel male or female right now - I don’t even feel human. This is just unbelievable.”
