The Thoroughbred Network had the privilege of getting to know Lizzie Jelfs and what makes her tick. Most people know Lizzie from Sky Racing as a paddock analyst but what made her fall in love with the sport? The Thoroughbred.
Lizzie took us through her childhood right up to when she sat on her first racehorse. She shares her experiences of travelling globally with one of Australia’s biggest racing stables through to her race days reporting back to the public on some of her favourite horses. She has a wealth of knowledge about Thoroughbreds and shares an inspirational story about her love for the breed and the importance of welfare.
In this episode, we accompany the Australian thoroughbred auction houses of Magic Millions and William Inglis as they inspect nearly 10,000 yearlings entered by the stud farms for their 2023 sales season.
In celebration of #BlackHistoryMonth, Leading The Way series 2 continues as we visit Kendrick Carmouche. Carmouche discusses his career in the saddle, his journey as a jockey and reflects upon the history of African-American jockeys in US horse racing.
An inspirational group making a real difference in the Compton community, changing and in some case saving lives, the group was set up by 10 childhood friends on a mission to challenge stereotypes around African-Americans and horseback riding.
