Sutherland Shifts From Saddle To Celluloid
With over 900 winners and model looks, US jockey Chantal Sutherland "has called an end to her illustrious [riding] career" to chase her ambitions as an actress, reports racenet.com.au. The first female jockey to ride in the Gr1 Dubai World Cup, she explained her dramatic career shift: "The moment has come where I have decided to announce my retirement from being a professional jockey; I almost can't believe it myself ... I'm not sad, but rather looking at another opportunity to begin a new chapter in my life."
