Schmidt reaching for the stars on Sky

LOOKING resplendent in pink, former Northern Rivers jockey Priscilla Schmidt looked every bit the TV star as co-commentator alongside Gary Kliese for Sky Racing at the Clarence River Jockey Club race meeting on February 9.

Just one month into her new media career, it is not just her confidence in front of the camera that is helping her make a smooth transition into the role, but her thorough insight into the racing industry.

DEX reporter BILL NORTH caught up with Schmidt to see how she was enjoying the new challenge.
