RUTH JEFFERSON WINS IN USA!
British lady jockeys’ representative RUTH JEFFERSON rode her first winner in the Fegentri series today in Delaware Park, USA. In a thrilling finish, Ruth just held on to win by a neck from Sweden’s Cathrine Engebretsen with France’s Pauline Boisgontier a further neck back in third.
This winning ride takes Ruth into 2nd place behind Pauline in the league tables with another race in the US tomorrow at Philadelphia Park before the next Fegentri race is held at Nottingham on 3rd July. Many congratulations to Ruth. Great Britain has been runner-up for the last 2 years in the Fegentri Ladies World Championship but GB has never won the ladies title in Fegentri’s history, so our hopes are high for Ruth.
Meanwhile our gentleman jockeys’ representative HARRY CHALLONER flew out to Sweden today for three rides there tomorrow in the Fegentri flat race, the Swedish Champion Hurdle and the Swedish Grand National. Harry then travels to Dieppe on 28th June.
