In her new role, Phoebe will be a special guest at some of the biggest events of the Spring – on and off the track – including an exclusive owners’ event behind the scenes with Gai Waterhouse and the ultimate Cup Week preview event, the FLR Derby Day Eve Luncheon. She’ll also be trackside at all the major days of the Carnival, fuelling her new love of the sport.

It was Oaks Day at Flemington last year when Phoebe’s life changed forever – dragged along by her family to  see their filly Miss Wonderland run third in a Group 3 race - she discovered a passion for horse racing and she’s never looked back.

“I came back to Australia after seven years overseas, and after my first day at Flemington I couldn’t believe what I’d been missing out on,” she said.

These days, she starts the day at the gym with racing replays on the TV, spends most weekends trackside and will travel to and from Melbourne for all the key social events of the spring.

Her new appointment is no coincidence – she’s recently become a First Light Racing owner in an up-and-coming 2YO Sizzling colt with champion Brisbane trainer Robert Heathcote and a Snitzel colt with Tony McEvoy, and has a number of Spring prospects in the family stable.

“I’m so excited to be part of the Spring Racing Carnival. Racing has become my absolute passion and as a First Light owner I am looking forward to meeting other owners and talking all things racing – and of course fashion!”
