Hollie Doyle announced as Goodwood Racecourse ambassador for 2018
Leading female jockey Hollie Doyle was today announced as the new ambassador for the 2018 season at Goodwood Racecourse. Based with Classic-winning trainer – and Goodwood specialist – Richard Hannon, Hollie’s career went from strength to strength in 2017 with 59 winners and over half a million pounds in prize money.
2018 has kicked off in style with Hollie breaking through the 100 career winners mark when steering Ay Ay to victory. She will be hoping to enjoy further success as the British flat turf season builds up a head of steam and she looks sure to add to her Listed Stakes win from last season aboard Billesdon Bess.
Hollie will also be taking part in the 2018 Silk Series, a £150,000 race series for female jockeys across thirteen British racecourses, which showcases talent and supports Cancer Research UK. The Goodwood leg of The Silk Series will take place on Sunday, August 26
Hollie will also be providing content for Goodwood’s social media channels from her experiences at the Hannon yard.
Hollie Doyle, ambassador for Goodwood Racecourse, said; “I’m unbelievably excited to be taking up this role with Goodwood. It’s one of the most iconic and beautiful courses in the country and is a favourite of mine. The Qatar Goodwood festival is an obvious stand-out of the calendar – but racing here is great throughout the year and I can’t wait to get down there this season.”
The new season begins at Goodwood Racecourse on Saturday 5 May. For further information and to book tickets please visit Goodwood.com or speak to a member of the dedicated sales team on 01243 216610.
