History Is Made By Former Tipperary Hunt Branch Member Rachel Blackmore
The stuff that only dreams are made of....Former IPc and Tipperary Hunt Branch Member Rachel Blackmore has made history by becoming the first lady jockey to win the Cheltenham Festival Champion Hurdle 2021!
Rachel rode a tactically brilliant race, she did all the right things, with Honey Suckle bravely attacking each hurdle that came their way.
Rachel is surely an inspiration to all our members, showing that with lots of hard work any one of you can be a champion hurdle winning jockey!
Many congratulations to Rachel and the Blackmore Family from everyone in the Irish Pony club.
