Lizzie Kelly, the first woman to ride a Grade One winner over jumps in Britain, is halting her career as a jockey to start a family.
Kelly, 27, has announced she is expecting her first child with husband Ed and is unlikely to return competitively to the saddle.
“I will not be returning to the weighing room this season and in all likelihood not at all,” she said.
She made history with a Grade One win on Tea For Two at Kempton in 2015.
