International Women’s Day 2021 – My Career Story

To celebrate International Women’s Day on Monday 8th March we have asked some women who work in the horseracing industry today for their career paths and what got them interested in racing. With such a diverse mix of roles you can do in the industry everyone’s path tells its own story. From telling us about the best part of their days, to their proudest moments in their career so far and even some of the opportunities to travel world, the horseracing industry has been quite an experience for them.

Each case can be found in full below and each has a bit of advice for you if your thinking about a career in racing.

If you feel inspired by their stories make sure to get in touch to us via or via social media.
