Hayley Turner celebrated another landmark as she became the first jockey to twice be leading rider at the Shergar Cup.

Turner, who finished top last year, rode a 37-1 double at Ascot to claim the Alistair Haggis Silver Saddle.

The 36-year-old captained the 'Girls' team that finished level with Europe, behind winners the Rest of the World.

She won two of the six races, on 13-2 chance Eddystone Rocks and 4-1 favourite Sapa Inca.

Turner was the first woman to ride 100 winners in the UK in a year and in June became the first woman for 32 years to ride a winner at Royal Ascot.

The Shergar Cup, first held in 1999, sees four teams of three riders compete for points.
