BBC Sport - Cheltenham Festival: Lizzie Kelly criticises mooted 4lb female weight allowance
Jockey criticises 4lb weight allowance
- From the section Horse Racing
Jockey Lizzie Kelly says a mooted 4lb weight allowance for female riders is not good for women.
If implemented, women jockeys will be given an extra 4lb allowance over men with the aim to create more female winners.
However, Kelly told BBC Radio 5 that the move would not only cause women to win artificially, but also encourage unhealthy and unsafe weight for female riders.
