London: Teenager Khadijah Mellah created history on Thursday, becoming the first Muslim woman to ride in a British race.

Wearing a hijab under her helmet the 18-year-old enjoyed a fairytale debut, steering Haverland to victory in the Magnolia Cup, just three months after first sitting on a racehorse.

"There are no words to describe it. I can't believe it, to be fair," she told RacingTV after being declared the winner of the charity event following a lengthy photo-finish.
