How were you first introduced to Women in Thoroughbred Racing NT?

As the idea of WTRNT started to take shape I was invited to attend a meeting by Michelle Graham and Wendy Longuet and from that time I knew it was going to be a huge success.

Your favorite racing moment?

Seeing the WTRNT Syndicate owners take to the podium the first time a syndicate win.  I thought the podium was going to crumble there were so many ladies involved.  It was very exciting seeing them all have a win, some of them for the first time.  Definately what WTRNT is all about, getting more females involved in the Racing Industry in the NT. 

What is your favorite event over Darwin Cup Carnival?   

Well I don’t think you can go past the excitement and glamour of the Gala Ball but Ladies Day comes a very close second.  Both events bring out the amazing fashion that you become to expect over the Darwin Cup Carnival.
