Hayley Turner became the first woman to ride 100 winners in a calendar year as she triumphed aboard Mullitovermaurice at Wolverhampton on Tuesday.

A victory aboard Newlyn Art at Lingfield prior to her trip to the other all-weather venue,saw Turner make it 99 successes to her credit this term.

Mullitovermaurice was sent off a 7-1 shot for the Bet At ladbrokes.com Claiming Stakes and Turner always had her mount in the front rank in the extended mile heat.

Although Turner's mount drifted across the track in the straight, the James Given-trained runner just held the late thrust of Betws Y Coed by a neck with True Britannia a further head back in third.

Turner's century of winners tops an incredible year for the rider who has enjoyed high-profile winners at a string of big meetings.
