Woman Jockey Wins The Grand National

What a headline but it came true today with Rachael Blackmore winning on a horse called Minella Times.

Well done to Rachael.
The first woman to ride in the Grand National was way back in 1977 with Charlotte Brew riding for the first time.


I might have the day off today!

Imagine people who normally gamble in the Grand National, I bet women would bet on her while the men don't.
Not being sexist or anything but I can just imagine that being the case.
