Louisa Carberry to break new ground with first British runner at Newbury

Thu 20 Jul 2017

Louisa Carberry is set to saddle her first runner in Britain on Saturday when It's Jennifer lines up in the EBF & TBA Mares' "National Hunt" Novices' Hurdle Finale at Newbury.

Married to Champion Hurdle-winning jockey Philip, she is the niece of former trainer Kim Brassey and has held a licence in France for nearly three years.

It's Jennifer has won at Auteuil this season and will be ridden at Newbury by her trainer's brother-in-law Peterjon Carberry.

"I wouldn't say it's always been the plan," said the trainer, who is based in the west of France.

"Her owner suggested this race a couple of months ago as it is for novice mares and she was qualified.

"If she adapts to the English style of racing and English hurdles - we're going to school her over some - then we'll see how she does.

"She's not coming for a party, anyway.

"Peterjon will ride her as he won on her and kept the ride, but Philip has done a lot of the work on her so they can both claim the glory if she wins!

"Peter is based here full time now and him and Philip split the rides."
