HOLLIE DOYLE caught up on the ribs she took off her rivals after finishing third in the BBC’s “Sports Personality of the Year” award

The record-breaking jockey – the only woman on the six-person shortlist – finished behind Liverpool and English star Jordan Henderson and F1 world champion and winner Lewis Hamilton

But there was no time to party for 5ft, 8st Doyle, who had five races at Lingfield Racecourse in Surrey today

She just got her 149 Winner of the year beating Little Sunflower 8-1 when she caught Sky Sports Racing host Luke Harvey

The presenter asked Doyle – who once swallowed two teeth in a horror case – how it was among her rivals after breaking into the national conscience at the awards ceremony on Sunday

And Doyle, walking the red carpet with his friend and colleague jockey Tom Marquand, replied, “They said they didn’t recognize me last night!”

Doyle, 24, was 33-1 long to win the award before a tidal wave of support from the racing community saw their chances drop to 9-4

While she wasn’t a winner, she was clearly thrilled with her newfound fame although a gray and dreary Monday in Lingfield brought them back to earth

One of the highlights of their incredible year was driving a historic brace on British Champions Day at Ascot

She was also the first woman to record a five-timer when she won five races in one day at 899-1 at Windsor

At the awards, little Doyle, who can double her body weight, said, “I know this year has been amazing, but I don’t want this to be my best year

“I want bigger and better things Every athlete who gets a taste of success wants more, so I want to keep the revs up and keep plowing”

And she paid tribute to everyone who voted her when describing what it felt like to come third

Doyle said, “It felt amazing, but it didn’t feel for myself, it felt for our entire industry that I’m proud to be a part of”

“Things like that don’t happen to people like me. It’s an honor to be where I am”

Your friend Marquand also summed it up nicely when he tweeted, “Saying I’m proud wouldn’t even start scratching the surface”
