Hayley Turner

Hayley Turner is a professional jockey based in the United Kingdom. She was born on January 3, 1983. Turner is widely considered to be the first woman to achieve a sustained, day-in, day-out, successful career as a professional jockey in the UK. She became the first female rider to ride 100 UK Flat race winners during a calendar year (a huge achievement for any rider), when winning on 'Mullitovermaurice' at Wolverhampton on 30 December 2008. That year also saw Turner ride in over 900 races in the UK - one of only five riders to achieve the milestone that year. In July 2011 Hayley rode her first Group 1 winner, Dream Ahead in the July Cup at Newmarket, and repeated the trick the following month winning the Group 1 Nunthorpe Stakes on Margot Did during York racecourse's Ebor Meeting.
