Phil Shea, Josephine’s booking agent said;
“For once I am lost for words! Having said that, watching Josephine progress during the winter on the all-weather and grow in confidence with her riding, I always felt she had a serious chance of winning the apprentice title.
“I am very proud of what she has achieved. If we can continue to receive the support from trainers and owners with her riding, I would like to think Josephine could feature in the top tier of jockeys in the country as she progresses from an apprentice to a professional”.
Trainer, Hugo Palmer added:
“Josephine is a remarkably gifted and strong jockey. Myself and my owners have been delighted to support her this year and we will continue to do so and I would expect to see her progress from here and to feature amongst the leading jockey rankings in the future”.
