Hollie Doyle moved to within one of equalling her personal best record of 151 winners for a calendar year with victory on Space Cowboy at Newcastle on Tuesday.

Hollie Doyle is two winners away from setting a personal record for victories in a single year after landing a double at Newcastle on Tuesday.

The Sky Sports Racing ambassador enjoyed her 149th and 150th success of 2021, winning on board Archie Watson's Verona Star and Richard Spencer's Space Cowboy.

It has been another standout season for the jockey, getting her second Royal Ascot winner with Amtiyaz in the Copper Horse Stakes in June, followed by a second career Group One through Trueshan's Goodwood Cup victory a month later.

Doyle then doubled up with 4/1 chance Space Cowboy, running from the front to take the feature on the day, the Watch Racing Free Online At Coral EBF Conditions Stakes, earning the horse a fast-track qualifying spot for Good Friday's All-Weather Finals Day back at Newcastle.

"I didn't want to make the running but obviously no one else wanted to. I kind of got left in front and did my own thing.

"He's probably only worked for about a furlong and a half but he's hit the line hard.

"I think that will probably be his last run of the year so he's a really exciting horse for next year."
