International Women’s Day Careers Case Studies

To celebrate International Women’s Day (Friday 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 and mix of roles you can do now each path is very different and 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 challenges they may have faced and how they have overcome them.
