HELEN OF TROY LADIES HURDLE SERIES ANNOUNCED
Helen of Troy, the hair care and health care manufacturer, are pleased to announce their sponsorship of the Helen of Troy Ladies Hurdle Series 2006.
This series consists of 5 races shared between 5 different courses and spread over 4 months with points being awarded for the first 6 placed jockeys in each race. The lady jockey with maximum points at the end of the series will be awarded the Helen of Troy Champions’ Trophy.
“Helen of Troy has been involved in sponsorship of lady jockeys since 2003 and it gives us great pleasure to announce this new series” said Kevin James, Senior Vice President of HoT.
Lady jump jockeys are not presented with many races confined to their own sex during the racing calendar and this series will undoubtedly raise their profile both within The Amateur Jockeys Association and the racing industry in general.
The series begins on 1st February at Leicester followed by Huntingdon, Warwick and Towcester, and culminates with the series final at Wetherby on their Ladies Evening of Saturday 1st June.
