Hollie Doyle breaks her own record by claiming 117th win this season at Kempton  


Hollie Doyle breaks her own record by claiming 117th win this season after riding 2-1 favourite State Occasion to victory by a short head at Kempton

  • Doyle has broken her own British record for winners ridden in a year by a woman 
  • The 24-year-old secured her 117th victory of 2020 on State Occasion at Kempton
  • Doyle won by a short head on the 2-1 favourite in a photo finish from Tornadic

Hollie Doyle broke her own British record for the most winners in a calendar year by a female jockey at Kempton on Wednesday night.

Doyle won the Unibet 3 Uniboosts A Day Nursery Handicap on 2-1 favourite State Occasion, driving home to win by a short head in a photo finish with Tornadic.

The 24-year-old ended last season with 116 winners — breaking Josephine Gordon’s record of 106 — but this was her 117th of this season, with two and a half months left to add more.

Doyle said: ‘When I broke the record last year, in the back of my mind I was always thinking about breaking it again this year, as I didn’t want it to be a one-off, so I’m delighted to have achieved that goal. 

‘When you think that we missed two months of racing this year, it is amazing. I want to thank all the owners and trainers who have supported me.’

As well as the record, Doyle has also had her first Group winner, on Ed Vaughan’s Dame Malliot in the Princess of Wales’s Stakes at Newmarket.
