Olympic cycling champion Victoria Pendleton says Ripon Racecourse will now have "a special place" in her heart.

She made her competitive debut as a jockey in the Betfair Novice Flat Amateur Riders' Handicap on Bank Holiday Monday.

The 34-year-old was riding Royal Etiquette and finished second.

Victoria switched saddles from cycling to horse racing six months ago.
