In most professions fifteen years isn’t such a long time.
In the life of a professional jockey, it’s a pretty lengthy period.
In the case of a female professional jockey, it’s an eternity.
I’m a keen watcher of Sky’s harness racing coverage on Saturday nights, which incorporates all races from Clifford Park, Toowoomba. For several years now, I’ve been aware of the impressive strike rate of jockey Skye Bogenhuber. Rarely does a meeting go by that she doesn’t win at least one race, while doubles and trebles are common.
