- Hayley received an OBE from Her Majesty The Queen in 2015 for her services to racing.
Hayley was voted Channel 4’s Racing Personality of The Year in 2009.
In 2011 Hayley made history becoming the first female jockey to win a British Group 1, Newmarket’s July Cup aboard Dream Ahead.
Later that year she was crowned William Hill Sportswoman of the Year, Jaguar’s Most Influential Sportswoman of the Year and in May 2012 added Glamour Sportswoman of the Year to her accolades.
In August 2012, Hayley became the first female jockey to win the Grade 1 Beverly D Stakes – a breakthrough at the very highest level in the US.
Haley retired from the saddle at the end of the 2015 and established a media career with At The Races and ITV Racing. However, she returned to the saddle again in 2018 and since has been part of the winning team of the Silver Saddle and Shergar Cup at Ascot.
Away from horses, Hayley is an ambassador for Active Communities Network, a London based charity that utilises sport as a method to engage, mentor and inspire underprivileged young people in deprived communities.
