Meet the equestrian Chantal Sutherland – named in the ‘100 Most Beautiful People in the World’

CHANTAL SUTHERLAND is the model named in the 100 most beautiful people in the world who swapped the photo session for the equestrian winner.

Well, that’s an understatement.

The jockey hasn’t been shy about using her looks throughout her career and found a new level of popularity with her beggar QR code ad.

She has won over £40 million in her career in the saddle, has over 1000 winners and was once naked on a horse.

Oh, and she memorably raced one-on-one with her ex-fiance in a ‘battle of ex-lovers’.

Sutherland has just been seen and done all after riding her first winner in October 2000.

Since then, she has been the face of America’s Del Mar racetrack, the venue for this year’s Breeders’ Cup.

There have been Tier 1 wins – such as the controversial 2011 Santa Anita Handicap win on Game On Dude – and a season in which she has won more than £6.5 million.

But perhaps what is best known is her entry into a runner-up race with her ex-fiance at Del Mar in 2011.

Chantal, whose looks have earned her a four-page Vogue and Sports Illustrated cover, is engaged to American legend Mike Smith.

They broke off their engagement in June 2010 and just over a year later went head-to-head on horseback.

The eerie sight was televised and labeled the ‘Battle of the Exes’.

Smith, who won the race, said the only reason he agreed to enter the race was to raise the profile of the race and get more people into the sport.

He said: “I have nothing to win in this situation. I am lucky to do as well as I did.

“If she had hit me, I wouldn’t have heard the end of it!

“If I won, I would never say anything to her.

“Someone asked me if I thought about the possibility of a woman winning and the answer was ‘no’.

“There’s pressure, pressure to win. But there’s also fun.”

For her part, Sutherland, who was once on People magazine’s ‘100 most beautiful people’ list, said she was glad it was over.

‘CRACK EGGS ON YOUR HEAD’

She said: “Mike did a really good race. All credit to him. Honestly, I’m glad it’s over.

“There’s a lot of pressure around this, tons of media work leading up to it. But it’s also fun.

“Overall, I enjoyed. And the cheering from the fans here today was special. The fans were amazing. That made it all worthwhile.”

Sutherland didn’t win that day – but she did reveal the strange ritual that took place after she won her first race.

Speaking on the Conan O’Brien Show, she said: “When you win your first race, you go into the riders’ room and they crack eggs on your head, pour water over you. and shine your shoes where you don’t really want to.

“It stays on your skin for weeks, very irritating.”

The Canadian-born beauty is not afraid to use her appearance as an advantage in her career.

One ad shows her posing for a photo with a QR code on her butt.

Bettors will scan it and it will take them to a page to place bets online.

In a scene for Vanity Fair, she rides a horse ‘naked’ – then reveals the panties she’s wearing have come loose.

Talking about the ad on her parasite, Sutherland said she has no regrets and that she has made a lot of money thanks to it.

‘Barcode Button’

She said: “We have a lot of money for that so that’s okay.

Of course, not only did it go astray, but Sutherland broke down barriers.

She made history by becoming the first woman to ride a horse in the Dubai Cup – then the richest race in the world – in 2012.

Nearly ten years on the fire strung by Sutherland have been continued by the likes of Grand National winner Rachael Blackmore and Royal Ascot heroine Hollie Doyle.

Mind you, it’s not like Sutherland itself has slowed down.

She recently picked up more than one winner in 5 consecutive meetings at Gulfstream Park, with 2021 proving her the most successful since 2010.

And despite all her successes, the 46-year-old says her continued success is down to her ‘boring’ lifestyle.

She said: “I feel like I am in the region. I am super happy. When you have a lot of experience, you go to bed early, take care of your body.

“I live a boring real life, other than racing. I’m very focused on racing. I’m very happy here. I’m in a good place.”
