Bridget Andrews, a young jockey sponsored by national trade fabricator Crystal Direct, has won the National Lady Novice Riders Point-to-Point Championship.
The 18 year old won the championship by a good margin having ridden three more winners than her nearest rival. During the Point-to-Point season, Bridget rode 10 winners and was consistently placed in all her races. Her sister made it a family double by winning the Lady Professional Riders Championship.
“I’m absolutely thrilled, and I’d like to thank Crystal for its support,” says Bridget. “My sister was unable to win the novice title before she became a professional jockey. But she has gone on to win the Professional Ladies title and I am hoping to do the same when I turn professional.”
Crystal Chairman Martin Randall comments: “Bridget is very talented and has made an exceptional start to her riding career. We are pleased to support her and I have no doubt she has an excellent career ahead of her.”
