As one of only five women professional National Hunt jockeys in the country, Lizzie has already made a huge impression on the racing scene. With her mount, Aubusson she won the first race at Cheltenham’s 2014 New Year’s Day meeting, beating AP McCoy and Richard Johnson.  The same partnership saw her win at Haydock this season.
 
Having romped home on Tea for Two in the Lanzarote Hurdle at Kempton in January, the pair suffered mixed fortunes in March at the Cheltenham Festival.  More recently, Kelly achieved 2nd place at Worcester on Armour D’Or.
