A Salute to the Women in Harness Racing

123In what could only be seen as a great endorsement  for our sport, we had  three Bartley girls who competed in the same race at Shepparton last night.

 

Rebecca and Ellen are accomplished reinswomen who have been on the scene for a while, however it was Lisa who was having her first race drive that stole the show.

 

She won and beat Amanda Turnbull, who was driving the favourite, Star Black.

 

Amanda also happens to be the trainer of the winner Als Courage that Lisa drove.

 

As far as we can ascertain, this has not happened in Victoria since 1984 when the 3 Misfud sisters raced against each other.

 

This got us thinking, why have our HRA industry leaders not introduced an AUSTRALASIAN REINSWOMEN’S CHAMPIONSHIP?

 

After all, alongside of our Champion horses, and Champion Reinsperson’s they are one of the sports few great assets.

 

If any of our harnessbred.com friends have a story like this above please share it with us, who knows this could just be the start of a great series under the title of

 

“A Salute to the Women in Harness Racing”

 

 

Well done to all the girls that have been driving all over the country, you get a BIG THUMBS UP from us.
