Hayley Turner to ride in France for female weight allowance

Hayley Turner

British Flat racing’s most successful female jockey Hayley Turner is to ride in France to take advantage of the controversial 2kg (4.4 lb) weight allowance for horses ridden by women.

The allowance was introduced in February to compensate for a supposed lack of strength in the saddle.

Turner, 34, will “to and fro a bit to France” when other commitments allow.
