In a move towards gender equity in horse racing, Abigail Able, the accomplished female jockey, has officially inked an ambassadorial agreement with Q8Oils, marking a pivotal moment in her career and the sport of horse racing.

Acknowledging the opportunity presented by the brand partnership, Abigail expressed her gratitude, emphasising her determination to achieve greatness. 'I'm truly thankful for this opportunity,' Abigail beamed. 'Being chosen among many talented jockeys is humbling. This partnership is just the start for me. It proves that hard work pays off, and I hope other female jockeys see me as proof that dreams can come true in this male-dominated sport. I'm forever grateful,' she added.

For Abigail, this collaboration signifies more than just a sponsorship deal. It symbolises a stride forward in her relentless pursuit of excellence both on and off the racetrack. Aswanda Stoddart, AVP Administration at Supreme Ventures Racing and Entertainment Limited, operators of Caymanas Park, was pleased with yet another corporate entity investing in the sport.

"Partnerships like this are vital for the continuation of the sport and are a vote of confidence to show that we are on the right path in bringing you the best in sporting entertainment at the highest of standards. Last year, a few of our jockeys entered into endorsement deals, and we’re pleased to welcome Bearings and Accessories as our newest partner. This partnership is extra special as it is our first female jockey being signed. Congratulations Abigail!" she exclaimed.

Raymond Rousseau, Chairman of Bearings and Accessories Limited, expressed his admiration for Abigail's exemplary conduct both as a rider and an individual. "I'm truly impressed by her humility. Abigail's modesty and respectfulness truly resonate with our brand values. It's refreshing to witness her excel in this male-dominated sport. Seeing women succeed in diverse fields like this is truly inspiring. I couldn't be happier for her," he remarked.

Abigail's journey in horse racing is deeply intertwined with her apprenticeship under Wayne DaCosta, whose mentorship played a pivotal role in shaping her career. Paying tribute to her mentor's legacy, she remains steadfast in her pursuit of excellence, poised to leave an indelible mark on the sport.

As Abigail steps into her role as a Q8Oils brand ambassador, she carries with her the aspirations of aspiring female athletes worldwide, inspiring them to break barriers and carve their path to success.
