NEWS: New series for female jockeys
on 10 January 2020
A seven-race series includes races on Thyestes Day at Gowran Park and at the Fairyhouse Easter Festival

FOUR new races for female jockeys have been added to three existing races to make a seven-race Ladies National Hunt Series.

The first race in the series was staged at Fairyhouse on New Year’s Day and was won by Aine O’Connor aboard Spruced Up.

The next race in the series is the €20,000 Connolly’s Red Mills Irish EBF Ladies Auction Maiden Hurdle at Gowran Park on Thursday, January 23rd.

Five of the races are over hurdles and two are over fences. They are all open to amateurs and professionals, and points will be allocated to each rider based on their placings in the races. Double points will be allocated to riders with fewer than 10 career wins.

Connolly’s Red Mills will give the series winner a €1,000 voucher for their country living superstore in Kilkenny.
