Leopardstown Racecourse Announce Siobhan Rutledge Partnership

Siobhan Rutledge | Leopardstown Racecourse

Meath jockey Siobhan Rutledge will be sponsored by Leopardstown Racecourse for the 2024 Flat season.

Rutledge began her racing career in 2018 having graduated from the RACE Racing Academy. Riding predominantly for Stamullen-based trainer John McConnell, Rutledge has since clocked up a total of 73 career winners, notable winning the 2023 Connacht Oaks aboard Starry Heavens (Ire) (Mastercraftsman {Ire}) for Jessica Harrington.

“I'm delighted to announce my partnership with Leopardstown Racecourse,” said Rutledge. “I'm incredibly grateful for this amazing sponsorship opportunity and I can't wait to represent their brand on and off the track.

“Their support means a lot to me as it was at Leopardstown itself where I had my first experience of race riding and fell in love with all that the sport has to offer. I'm really looking forward to kicking off this season with Leopardstown's support behind me. I hope we can thrive together and inspire the next generation to pursue their passions fearlessly.”

CEO of Leopardstown, Tim Husbands, added, “We are thrilled to be supporting Siobhan through the 2024 season and following her progress all the way. Siobhan is one of our top female jockeys and nurturing and supporting that talent is something extremely important to Leopardstown.

“Fostering the visibility of Women in Sport, as well as the accessibility of careers within the industry, is something we take pride in. We look forward to being a part of Siobhan's journey through the summer.”
