Back in 1983, Lawrence apprentice jockey, Beverley Want, made history when she became the first woman to win the South Grafton Cup.
On Sunday, her daughter jockey Tegan Harrison followed in her mother’s footsteps, to win her first South Grafton Cup. Ms Want said that she is very proud of her daughter and her racing achievements. “Tegan just loves collecting my cups,” she said laughing. “She’s the Country Cup Queen.”
Tegan loves to win races which her mother has made history by winning (as the first female jockey). Ms Want said that during her time as a jockey, she had won the Inverell Cup twice in one year, due to it being a leap year. “She’ll never get that one off me,” she laughed.
