RACHAEL BLACKMORE’S company posted record profits last year as she saw her cash pile soar after superstar success in the saddle.
The Irish jockey, 33, enjoyed a profit of £315,981 at the firm she owns in the 12 months to the end of last December.

That was almost double the £161,147 profits she posted in 2020, according to the Irish Examiner.
The firm – incorporated as recently as 2019 – is now sitting on accumulated profits of £560,000 with the latest figures taken into account.
Blackmore became a sensation on the global stage last year.
She became the first woman jockey to win the Grand National with success on Minella Times, the horse owned by Irish billionaire JP McManus.
That Aintree success came the month after she won the Champion Hurdle on Honeysuckle en route to becoming the first woman rider to be crowned leading jockey at Cheltenham Festival.
She also won the Triumph on Quilixios but infamously gave up the Gold Cup-winning mount on Minella Indo.

Jack Kennedy won that year before Blackmore made amends on A Plus Tard 12 months later.
Things have not been such plain sailing since.
Blackmore and Honeysuckle tasted their first ever defeat together in the Hatton’s Grace Hurdle at Fairyhouse earlier this month.
That appeared to put an end to the chance of a mouthwatering head-to-head with Constitution Hill at Cheltenham.
But Blackmore remains a sponsor’s dream with her clean cut image and grace in front of camera.
She also remains a key pillar of support to Henry de Bromhead, the trainer whose horses she mostly rides.
The Irish trainer spoke of how Blackmore has been there for him in the dark days since.
Blackmore herself admitted ‘winners don’t feel the same’ after the heartbreaking tragedy.
