Female jockeys win Shergar Cup

A trio of female jockeys beat three all-male sides to win racing’s team riding event – the Shergar Cup at Ascot – for the first time.

The ‘Girls’ team, of Emma-Jayne Wilson, Sammy-Jo Bell and Hayley Turner, claimed three of the six races.

Bell clocked up a 55-1 double to win the Alistair Haggis Silver Saddle for top rider and Wilson also won in the event, first run in 1999.

“This is definitely the best day of my career,” said Bell.
