As far as making racing history goes, few jockeys are in the same league as Rachael Blackmore.

With a string of ‘first ever’ achievements to her name, she is possibly racing’s best exemplar of women’s ability to compete with men in sport.

Who is Rachael Blackmore?

Currently, stable jockey to Henry De Bromhead, Racheal Blackmore’s career in the saddle began on ponies at her parents’ County Tipperary farm.

While she was a student of Equine Science at university, she rode out and began to compete as an amateur jockey.

Blackmore rode her first winner under Rules in 2011 for John ‘Shark’ Hanlon, and would rack up seven wins as an amateur and eleven in Point-to-Point wins. Four years later, she took out a professional licence and her rise from then has been meteoric.

Her string of career ‘firsts’ began in 2017, when Blackmore was crowned Champion Conditional Jockey with 32 winners. She went on to become the first woman to win the Grand National in 2021, and the first woman to be a leading rider at the Cheltenham Festival. To date, she has ridden nine winners at the Cheltenham Festival.

Blackmore has also been named RTÉ Sportsperson of the Year, in addition to BBC World Sport Star of the Year. She is a leading light and ambassador for women’s careers in racing and in sport generally.
