The Tipperary jockey made history on Tuesday when he became the first woman to win the coveted Champion Hurdle at Cheltenham

Then she extended her lead in the race for top jockey in Cheltenham on Thursday evening by defeating Telmesomethinggirl in the Parnell Properties Mares ‘Novices’ Hurdle at 4 a.m.15

Like many of Blackmore’s winners this week, Telmesomethinggirl is being trained by Henry de Bromhead of Waterford, with the two appearing to form a great duo

Blackmore appears to be an extremely strong contender for the top jockey, following performances dubbed “flawless” by commentators that day

While Blackmore itself is a picture of humility, horse racing legend AP McCoy was more than ready to give her her flowers as she spoke on Tuesday

“I thought it would be really hard for a girl to be a champion jockey, but she could be easy”She has it all. She is as good as any girl I’ve ever seen on a horse”
