Nina Carberry: New mum rides Cask Mate to victory at Ballinrobe
Irish jockey Nina Carberry has won on her comeback ride - four months after giving birth.
Amateur rider Carberry, 33, was successful aboard Cask Mate, trained by Noel Meade, at Ballinrobe, Republic of Ireland.
The 9-4 favourite won the concluding Bumper race by 12 lengths.
Carberry said: "It's great - Noel gave me a nice horse to ride and thank God I steered him in the right direction. I remembered the way to go around."
She was riding competitively for the first time since her and husband Ted Walsh Jr's first child, Rosie, was born.
"I've had a wonderful nine months and little Rosie arrived - I wouldn't swap that for any winner - but it's good to be back," added Carberry.
Meade said: "I'm absolutely thrilled for her - it's great to have her back - she's a magic person."
