Katie Walsh

First, we have one of Ireland’s top jockeys  – who has achieved seriously impressive victories, including in the Grand National.

Katie Walsh is a hugely successful Irish jockey who has left quite a mark on horse racing. She comes from a family that is deeply rooted in the sport – her father and brother are both accomplished jockeys. Walsh herself went on to get her own fair share of attention for her performances… particularly in high-profile events like the Grand National.

Memorably, in 2012, she rode Seabass to a remarkable third place, defying the horse racing odds and setting a record as the highest-placed female jockey in the race’s history. This success has made her one of the most successful female figures in the sport – who has inspired aspiring both male and female jockeys and exemplified the real talent and determination of women in horse racing.
