‘World’s sexiest jockey’ is crazy rich and worth more than double Mike Tyson

She's as famous for her ventures off the track as she is for her success on it, but it hasn't made for a bad bank balance for stunning horse racing star Chantal Sutherland.

The Canadian jockey burst onto the scene in her homeland back in 2000, riding a winner at the Woodbine Racetrack in Toronto. In the two years that followed, she continued to launch her career by being voted as recipient of the Sovereign Award as her country's top apprentice jockey.

In July 2012, on board Game On Dude, Sutherland became the first woman jockey to win the Hollywood Gold Cup. Five years later, she became just the third Canadian female to notch 1,000 career wins. But her most high-profile race arguably came when she went face-to-face with former fiance Mike E. Smith in a sensational event billed the 'battle of the exes', which she lost despite claiming: "I think I won the popularity contest."

Sutherland has made more than £40 million in her race career, and last month boosted her income by taking part in a star-studded race in Saudi Arabia, that involved Frankie Dettori.

And the 47-year-old has found far reaching-fame, and that's not just for her striking figure and racy pics for her 6,300 Instagram followers.

Having featured in the likes of Vogue magazine and Sports Illustrated, Sutherland has previously been included in People magazine's '100 most beautiful people'. She also once landed a role in HBO television series Luck.

It has all amounted to a massive net worth of £20.77 million, according to caknowledge. For context, that's more than double the worth of legendary heavyweight boxing champion Mike Tyson.

That is a quite a feat given 'Iron Mike' has made more than £300 million in career winnings. Admittedly, Sutherland, long dubbed the 'world's sexiest jockey' has clearly been more conservative with her spending than the 56-year-old.

Prior to her racing career, few will be surprised to know that Sutherland took centre stage on the catwalk. But in previous interviews, she has referred to herself primarily as a jockey and not a model.

But she's never been afraid of a bit of a reality TV fame either. She took part in the Jockey on Animal Planet series, and was once the poster girl for the famous Del Mar racetrack in California.
