On fire Serena wins Newbury’s Lady Derby


Congratulations to leading lady jockey Serena Brotherton who took her tally for the season to equal her best ever 2011 total of 9 today when winning the Betfred Ladies Derby at Newbury.  This was Serena’s 4th win of this race since its inception 7 years ago, and her first ride for Richard Hannon.

A thrilling three-way battle to the line saw Serena ride a strong finish and lift LIL ROCKERFELLER to the winning post a neck in front of Megan Nicholls aboard her father’s AMANTO with Irish leading lady Jane Mangan half a length back in third for Sylvester Kirk on LAST MINUTE LISA.

Serena said “Its been a very lucky race for me.  There were very few entries this year so I called Richard Hannon’s yard and asked to be put on the list.  Luckily they called back!”
