Scottland: Gran National Triumph
Gran National Triumph
Jun 20 2008
JOCKEY Rachel Dewar, 79, came second in an epic 78-mile race and put it down to being young at heart.
The grandmother-of-two, who was in the saddle for 12 hours, modestly played down the fuss.
She said: "All you've got to do is sit there, it's not that hard."
Rachel, of Duns, Berwickshire, started the circular Hillhead Endurance Race at 7am in Musselburgh, East Lothian.
She finished on her horse Gypsy Cream at 7pm and admiited: "I was certainly feeling it for a few days afterwards."
Rachel, who took up endurance riding when fox hunting was banned, said: "I've got plenty of life in me yet. Horse riding keeps me fit."
