Kerton 1st Female Jockey In Qatar
Easter Odd Spot: UK jockey Charlotte Kerton (the 1st female to ride in Bahrain when she went there in 2003) made "another small slice of history over Easter, when she becomes the 1st woman to ride in Qatar," reported racingpost.co.uk. Like Bahrain, Qatar is a popular destination for Dubai-based jockeys (it is only a 1-hour flight away). Kerton, 25, has been riding for the Doug Watson stable in Dubai & returns to the UK in mid-May.
