Racing joy at town hotel

Have your say

BOSSES at a Doncaster hotel are celebrating after a jockey they sponsor became the sixth female rider ever to become a fully fledged professional.

Kelly Harrison, sponsored by The Crown Hotel, Bawtry, is now competing on equal terms with Frankie Dettori, six-times champion jockey Kieren Fallon and celebrated female jockey Hayley Turner.

Craig Dowie, Managing Director of The Crown, said: “We would like to extend our congratulations to Kelly, and are delighted to be associated with her.”
