The Girls win the 2018 Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup

The Girls' anthem for this year's Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup was The Pointer Sisters' classic hit "Sisters Are Doing It For Themselves" and Josephine Gordon, Hayley Turner and Hollie Doyle did exactly that as they were crowned the 2018 Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup champions. 

The Girls amassed 76 points during the day, six clear of Team Europe on 70 points, whilst Hayley Turner won the Alistair Haggis Silver Saddle trophy with 39 points. 

The Girls captain Josephine Gordon said: "Today proves that girls are better than boys! It's brilliant to compete against the best jockeys in the world. 

"Today's been really good fun and it's one of the best days of the year. We've thoroughly enjoyed our day and it's great to win. 

"Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup day is a bit more of a relaxed day. People have more fun in the weighing room and it is more of a family day out. 

"It's back to reality tomorrow as I'm at Windsor, but I'm on a bit of a high right now." 

Hollie Doyle, who partnered Tis Marvellous to victory in the opening Dubai Duty Free Shergar Cup Dash, was delighted to be part of the winning team. 

She added: "It's been an amazing afternoon. It was a very close finish, but I am delighted that we have won."
