Women are under-represented in the most prominent areas of British horse racing, says the first report into gender diversity in the sport.

Nearly 400 people at all levels of racing took part in the study, which has been seen by BBC Sport.

It found more women are entering racing from college courses, outnumbering men by a ratio of nearly 70:30.
