Sara Slot

Sara Slot began her racing career in 1998 as an apprentice with leading trainer Flemming Poulsen, when the stable had the Danish globetrotter Dano-Mast who finished third in the Hong Kong Cup (Gr1) 2002. Slot won eight races in 1999, but gained considerable momentum in 2000 with a massive 58 winners, enough to score fourth place in the Scandinavian Jockeys Championship.

Slot has been an eager traveller all her career and has spent winters in Australia, New Zealand, United Kingdom and USA. She has ridden in seven countries outside Scandinavia and rode in a female jockeys challenge in Chile where she was victorious in one of the races. Slot was the first Danish female rider to win a Group race, when she won Denmark’s most prestigious event, The Scandinavian Open Championship (Gr3), aboard the high-class mare Halfsong on whom she also rode two listed winners.

Sara is no stranger to event patron Benny Andersson, for whom she has ridden a number of times, including winning the Breeders Cup Trial at Klampenborg aboard Anderssons high profile mare Vigelegere, who has gone on to a successful breeding career.
