Female jockeys getting an allowance!


Recommended Posts

How absurd. Just like when France introduced such a move. And what has it done, exactly what would be expected. Given more rides to females and more winners. Making it easier for them to win. Just because a bunch of ignorant trainers thought females can't ride. That's their issue.

No wonder Jamie Kah told them how backward they are in the UK to even be considering such a move. France did it. And that is a disgrace.

As their own jockey Josephine Gordon put it, it would be offensive. She's spot on.

If they simply wanted to increase participation, France Galop could have done something as basic as stating they would pay the female rider fees (or a percentage of them). Or made a owner/trainer contribution of x for every y rides of their horses with females. This doesn't affect the races, it affects the finances of the owner/trainer.
