Newcastle Jockey Club is also excited to be having Louise Day as a guest speaker on the night. 

Louise Day is a likeable Irish lass that made Australia home in 2015. Louise first arrived in Melbourne and spent time working for Ciaron Maher at Caulfield.

Due to difficulties with her visa, Louise was unable to continue her apprenticeship in Victoria but was allowed to in New South Wales. Day approached Newcastle trainer Kris Lees during the Spring Carnival of 2016 and as they say, ‘the rest is history’.

Louise has now ridden over 90 winners in New South Wales and has scored doubles recently at Newcastle and Kembla Grange (twice).

Known as a fantastic judge of a horse, Day’s career has gone up another level in recent months with opportunities to ride at Metropolitan tracks in Sydney including a winner at Royal Randwick on the Lees trained mare Cuban Sizzle.

Louise will be taking questions and speaking about her experience as a leading female jockey.
