Racing enthusiast Hannah West has been named 2021 Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival ambassador.
Turf Club chief executive Brad Morgan says Ms West is an outstanding candidate, who is involved in the industry in many ways.
“Hannah is a big supporter of the Darwin Turf Club – she is both a Young Member, a frequent entrant in our Fashions on the Field competitions and she also has shares in racing thoroughbreds here in Darwin,” he says.
“Well known and a familiar face here in Darwin and at the Darwin Turf Club, Hannah will do an outstanding job as ambassador and we are very proud to announce her today.”
Ms West says she is honoured to take the position.
“Thoroughbred racing has long been a passion of mine, and I enjoy everything that it encompasses from the fashions to the thrill of watching your horse race and win,” she says.
Her favourite day over carnival is Ladies’ Day in the TAB Pavilion, closely followed by Darwin Cup Day.
“It is truly a day so many ladies in Darwin look forward to and I am so excited to see what 2021 brings to the table not just for the Fashions on the Field but also local racing on the day,” she says.
“The Darwin Cup speaks for itself – it is arguably the Top End’s favourite public holiday and a day where we get to share the Territory’s biggest social and sporting event with the rest of the nation.
“I can’t wait to showcase some of our wonderful retailers and designers over this period and already have some great ideas which I can’t wait to share.”
The Great Northern Darwin Cup Carnival starts on Saturday July 3 and runs through to Monday August 2 with tickets on sale through the Darwin Turf Club website – www.darwinturfclub.org.au
