Who is Emma-Jayne Wilson?
Emma-Jayne Wilson is a Sovereign and Eclipse Award-winning jockey in Thoroughbred horse racing. The daughter of a computer programmer and a corporate marketing executive, she began taking riding lessons as a girl of nine. After finishing high school in Brampton, she studied equine management at Kemptville College, part of the University of Guelph.
On September 16, 2012 she joined pioneering jockey Francine Villeneuve to become only the second Canadian woman to achieve the 1,000 career victories plateau, as she rode "D'wildcat Gold" to victory in the first race at Woodbine. Three days later by taking the fifth and sixth races at Woodbine, Emma-Jayne moved ahead of Villeneuve as Canada's all-time winningest female jockey, a distinction that Villeneuve had held for over 10 years.
