FLP Student rides 2 Pony Racing winners in 3 days!
Shelley Birkett, who is on the FLP programme at the British Racing School rode her first winner on the 3rd April at Higham Point to Point.
Shelley who is 15 years old and the daughter of trainer Julia Feilden rode 7 year old Maghera Tom to a 15 length victory. Tom had the following day off before she then rode him again on Easter Monday at MarksTey Point to Point. Tom happily obliged again and won by 25 lengths.
Shelley has already been successfully assessed at the BRS to ride with a Category A Amateur Licence, and no doubt when she turns 16 in August she will be following her mother, father and elder brother Ross into the winners enclosure under rules.
The British Racing school wish her the very best of luck with her next ride on the 10th April.
