DUBAI: The inaugural Saudi Cup last year made headlines around the world for being the first time that female jockeys had raced competitively in the Kingdom.

But as several of those riders noted, they were long established in racing and the day can’t come soon enough when the distinction is not worth mentioning any more.

Still, the 2021 edition of the world’s richest horse race includes an all-female trainer-jockey combination that will hope to cause an upset at the $1.5 million Al Rajhi Bank Saudi Derby on Saturday, February 20.
