Kirsty rose to fame with a phenomenally successful winter in 2007/2008, where she rode 42 all-weather race winners between November and March. This took her to the Leading Apprentice title for the winter season, and to overall second-place behind Chris Catlin, and three winners ahead of Hayley Turner. In February 2008 Kirsty also gained fame when riding three winners on an afternoon, at Kempton Park Racecourse - so far the only time this has been achieved by a female rider in the UK.

False accusations of corruption

On 20 May 2011 it was reported that Milczarek, along with three other jockeys and a trainer had "...intentionally failed to ensure that a horse ran on its merits...", and subsequently charged under the sport's anti-corruption rules. In December 2011 Milczarek was found guilty by the British Horseracing Authority and banned from riding for two years, but immediately lodged an appeal. On 10 April 2012, Milczarek's ban was overturned by the BHA's appeals panel after new evidence was presented. SInce this, Kirsty has returned to raceriding and has refound her previous success, including continuing to ride for Luca Cumani.

Personal life

Milczarek is based in Newmarket. She currently is employed largely by Luca Cumani. She was in a relationship with former Champion Jockey Kieren Fallon, which ended as a result of the groundless race-fixing allegations.
