Flat jockey queries rides 'inequality'
- From the section Horse Racing
Flat jockey Charlotte Jenner tells BBC South Today she believes female apprentices are being overlooked for top rides.
The 22-year-old has 13 wins to her name, but needs to reach 95 to fully qualify and claims owners and trainers choose men for the best horses.
According to a BBC South Today study, there are five qualified female jockeys compared to 165 men in the UK.
