Not too many people globally have a better ‘eye’ for a thoroughbred than Lizzie Jelfs.
She has quickly won over the toughest of all critics, “the Aussie punter”, with her mounting yard analysis on Sky Racing and the Seven Network, often providing winners a big odds. Go Lizzie!
Originally hailing from Oxford in England (she’s almost dropped the accent), Jelfs came to Australia in 2001 with aspirations of becoming a jockey. Working under the tutelage of the great CS Hayes, Jelfs worked as the travelling foreperson for the Lindsay Park team.
However, it is in-front of the camera where Jelfs has become best known to the Australian public. Her mounting yard critiques of horses are authentic, poignant, offering the viewer unparalleled insight into the fitness and winning chances of the horses.
It’s a privilege that we are able to access the insight of one of the world’s best judges of equine talent. We are truly lucky to have her support for MiEverest and a member of our selection panel.
