Winning The Grand National
As regular readers of this weekly mail will know, I’m a big fan of sport – and in particular those who persist against the odds to succeed.
So it should be no surprise that today the focus is on an incredible woman, Rachael Blackmore, who won the English Grand National on Saturday – becoming the first woman jockey to ever do so.
By winning she sent a clear message to the sports world to judge people on their merits and not on whether they are male, female or any other gender.
What I love about her journey so far is that she isn’t a child prodigy now achieving what was expected of her.
