Emma Chaston

Girl jockey has grand ambition to win the National
By: Paolo Camera

As Tony McCoy, one of racing's legendary jockeys, announces his retirement, there's a teenager champing at the bit to fill his boots.

Sixteen-year-old trainee jockey Emma Chaston has a long way to go to match McCoy's record-breaking 4,000-plus wins, but she has grand ambitions to someday take home one of racing's most coveted titles.

The schoolgirl from Kirkham, near Blackpool, wants to "win all the big races" but her ultimate goal is to be the first female jockey to enter the Grand National winner's enclosure at Aintree.

Emma is already competing in amateur events and has worked with top trainers like Nigel Twiston-Davies and Donald McCain.

Like McCoy, who has won it 19 years on the trot, Emma wants to be named champion jockey and be the first girl to do so.

Watch the Ladies Come Out to Play at Cheltenham 2013

The combination of women, fashion, clothes, glamour and horses.., may seem odd to many but to thousands of horseracing fans (and followers of fashion, as well), the second day of the Cheltenham Festival known as Ladies Day - is the highlight of the four-day event. Seven exciting afternoon races keep the horseracing fans riveted to the track, while fashion awards and stylish parades are the big attraction for many others. In the morning, the focus is on fashion, while the judges scan the crowd for outstanding ladies of style. But in the afternoon the emphasis returns to where it belongs - on the horses and the superb line-up of races. Whether you like style or horses, to make the most out of the day, enjoy the festival with William Hill Cheltenham betting.
