Hollie Doyle Breaks Record For Most Winners By Female Jockey

Hollie Doyle

Hollie Doyle has gone on to do what no other female jockey has done in the history of the sport and land 107 winners in a calendar year giving her the stand alone record for a woman rider in the sport.

The young rider took her landmark success at Southwell after a few frustrating days of not being able to get over the line with some of her rides but on board the David Barron trained Class Clown she finally took the record.

She gave the 4/1 favourite a superb ride with it looking like she was going to have to wait another day to get the record as the sprinter was second with 50 yards to go but Doyle pushed the gelding right out and managed to get up on the line.

(Credit Racing Post) "It feels a bit emotional," said Doyle, wiping away a tear in front of the Sky Sports cameras when asked how she felt about becoming a racing record-breaker.

"I'm very lucky and really grateful to all who have supported me.

"I set out to ride as many winners as I could this year, so to achieve a new British record for female jockeys is very satisfying and a wonderful way to end 2019. I never thought I would be in this position to break the record."

The female jockey that held the record before Doyle was life long friend Josie Gordon with 106 winners throughout 2017 and before that Hayley turner became the first woman rider to land exactly 100 winners in 2008.

Doyle, speaking to Great British Racing, added: "The fact that it was only two years ago that Josie set the last record is really positive and goes to show women are being given more rides every year.

"I’ve been incredibly lucky this year to avoid injury and to work for amazing trainers and owners, so I’d like that to continue and to have even more winners in 2020."
