This Silk Series is a new initiative for 2017.
It is a new £100,000 race series for female jockeys hosted at nine Ladies’ Days at ARC racecourses
between May and September.
The final race will be help on Ladies’ Day of the St Leger Festival at Doncaster in front of a crowd of 15,000 racegoers.
The leading female jockey at the end of The Silk Series will be awarded ‘The Tufnell Trophy’ in
memory of Meriel
Tufnell MBE who was Great Britain’s first Female Champion Jockey in 1972, a feat she matched in 1973
along with also
becoming European Female Champion Jockey.
In addition to her success on the racecourse she also founded the Lady Jockeys’ Association – the first such body in the world.
We very much hope you will come and be part of The Silk Series by attending one of ARC’s Ladies Days
which are full of colour and fun, as well as excellent sporting action.
All details about the nine racedays can be found on each of the racecourse’s websites.
