Cheltenham Festival: Bryony Frost makes history on emotional day

    Bryony Frost celebrates becoming the first Grade 1 winner at the Cheltenham Festival.

    (CNN)The words poured out in emotional fashion as Bryony Frost became the first female jockey to win a top-flight race on an inspirational day at the Cheltenham Festival.

    The 23-year-old Frost was roared home by an ecstatic crowd to win the Grade 1 Ryanair Chase onboard the Paul Nicholls-trained Frodon to secure her place in the record books.
    The pair's stunning triumph sparked a remarkable hour of racing which also yielded victory for blind owner Andrew Gemmell's Paisley Park and saw Lizzie Kelly clinch a double for female jockeys.
      "He's Pegasus! He's got wings," said an overjoyed Frost to ITV Racing at the finish line.
      "Most horses would quit, but he grabbed me by the hands and said, 'don't you dare give up, don't you dare not send me into the last - I want this more than you, now come on, where are you?'
      "Just look at what he's done there - deny that he just loves racing. He's unbelievable. I love you."
      Frost added: "He just made the dream come true, it's just incredible. He will deserve every single high five, pat and carrot."
