The Kildare native made her debut in the race aboard Seabass and made the Aintree record books beating off competition from Nina Carberry.
It is the 27-year-old's second time to win a Sportswoman of the Month, award and she will battle it out against the other monthly winners in December 2012 for the overall Sportswoman of the Year title.
