Inductees 2017 - Paula Wagg

Paula Wagg

Paula Wagg was the first female jockey to ride against men in WA. The year was 1979. In one of the most male-dominated occupations, the courageous Wagg was able to provide the determination to radically overall a sport that needed overhauling. Paula went on to ride and train horses around Australia and Asia at the most elite level. A true role model, she has mentored hundreds of young women in a sport that now approaches gender equity.
