The finale of the ladies Fegentri season was held today in Mauritius with four lady jockeys going into the race with only 14 points between them: Ruth Jefferson (GB) 151; Pauline Boisgontier (France) 144; Tina Henricksson (Sweden) 143 and Nina Wagner (Germany) 137. Sadly for Ruth she was unplaced today with Tina Henricksson 2nd, handing Tina the Fegentri Ladies World Championship 2010.
Many congratulations to Tina and Sweden on their new status and many congratulations to Ruth who has been a wonderful ambassador for Great Britain and worked hard to keep the runner up slot for us for the third year running, which is a great achievement.
