Most successful female rider in history of horse racing could be among top riders in action at Southwell Fibresand next month




The most successful female rider in the history of horse racing, Southwell’s Hayley Turner, could be among the top riders in action at her home track next month when the racecourse celebrates 30 years of all-weather racing.

Hayley, who went to the Lowe’s Wong and Minster schools in Southwell, had riding lessons at the nearby Trent Valley Equestrian Centre and began riding racehorses as a teenager for Southwell-based trainer Mark Polglase in the late 90s.

Since cutting her teeth on the Fibresand surface Hayley has gone on to have a career at the sport’s highest level, becoming the first female to ride an outright winner of a Group One race on Dream Ahead in the 2011 July Cup at Newmarket.
