Coleambally reinswoman Ellen Bartley is one of three drivers selected to wear special colours as harness racing helps support ovarian cancer research this month.
All female drivers in the state will wear teal pants with Harness Racing NSW and the TAB combining to donate $400 for every winner from February 1 to March 12.
Bartley was chosen alongside Lauren Panella and Emma Turnbull, to wear the special colours and is looking to forward to playing her part for charity.
“I was pretty excited when they rang and it is good to be recognised and get opportunities to promote not only the sport but cancer awareness,” Bartley said. “I was always jealous when the girls in Victoria go to do it as it seemed like a fun thing to be involved in.”
Bartley has four drives on the nine-race card at at Young on Tuesday night.
Already 17 races have been won by lady drivers.
