Ladies in Racing - - Contents -

On a glo­ri­ous Spring day in Septem­ber pun­ters de­scended upon Rose­hill Gar­dens for the an­nual Ron­ald Mcdon­ald House West­mead Golden Pen­dant Day. The 8 card event also co­in­cided with the Aus­tralian Turf Club’s in­au­gu­ral Women In Rac­ing func­tion hosted by Sky Rac­ing’s Caro­line Searcy. Train­ers Gai Water­house, Bar­bara Joseph, Kim Waugh and Betty Lane, jockey Wi­nona Costin, ris­ing book­maker Brooke Pendle­bury, and pop­u­lar milliner Nerida Win­ter were some of the spe­cial guests help­ing to cel­e­brate the many achieve­ments and va­ri­ety of roles that women play across the in­dus­try. The event was also a great op­por­tu­nity to raise funds for Ron­ald Mcdon­ald House West­mead, a not-for-profit or­gan­i­sa­tion that re­lies heav­ily on vol­un­teers, do­na­tions, cor­po­rate and com­mu­nity sup­port to pro­vide a “Home away from Home” for se­ri­ously ill chil­dren and their fam­i­lies.
