Jane Chapple-Hyam

Jane Chapple-Hyam, 46, is the daughter of former Australian Liberal politician Andrew Peacock and the former wife of Epsom Derby-winning trainer Peter Chapple-Hyam. She was his assistant for around 15 years in the UK and Hong Kong, before taking out a licence in her own right in September 2005. Based in Newmarket, Jane has saddled around 145 winners in her career to date, and enjoyed her best season in 2011 when she sent out the winners of 31 races. Her biggest win in her career to date came in 2006 when she saddled Mudawin to take the prestigious Ebor Handicap at York, one of the most valuable handicaps on the UK calendar, at the rewarding odds of 100/1. The sprinter Secret Asset came close to giving her a Group 1 success when beaten a short neck in the Prix de l’Abbaye de Longchamp in October 2011.
