Silks Series expanded in 2018

The Silk Series, which gives female jockeys further opportunitieson popular summer racedays, has been expanded to include races from Goodwood, Hamilton, Musselburgh and York.

Launched across nine Arc racecourses in 2017, the series also raises funds and awareness for Cancer Research UK.

Thirty-six jockeys took part in the series in 2017, with Megan Nicholls winning The Tufnell Trophy, named in honour of Meriel Tufnell, the first woman to ride a winner under rules in Britainin 1972.

In 2018, the series will offer a total of £150,000 in prize-money, with the £20,000 final taking place at the St Leger meeting. Jockeys win points based on their finishing position in each race.
