Charlotte Brew was the first female jockey to ride in the Grand National. She made history in 1977, when she was the first woman to ride in the Grand National, on her horse Barony Fort. Women were allowed to ride in the race for the first time because of the passing of the Sex Discrimination Act 1975 in England.
