Recently retired British jockey Hayley Turner has had a glittering career, capped by being the first woman to ride 100 UK flat winners during a calendar year.

The 32-year-old surprised the racing world when she announced on August 31 this year that she would retire from race riding at the end of the season.

The finest British female jockey to grace the turf, Turner rode 761 winners, and in 2008 was voted Channel 4’s racing personality of the year.

A 12-year partnership with Michael W Bell would bring her the most success with 34% of her winners coming from this formidable pairing, which came to an end in 2013.

What Turner brought to the horse racing world for female jockeys in a male dominated industry will be remembered and cherished for years to come.

She’ll continue her racing career as a broadcaster on At The Races, inspiring the next generation of female jockeys to compete at the highest level.
