TO be the Face Of Weetwood has been a dream of local mum, Vanessa Gleeson, for many years.
Vanessa was thrilled when she was chosen by the Toowoomba Turf Club to be this year’s Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood Face Ambassador.
The 40-year-old is a lover of horses and racing and was the perfect fit for this year’s role.
“It’s an absolute honour to take the step and be the Ambassador for this wonderful, local event. It’s an incredible opportunity,” Mrs Gleeson said.
A mother of two, Mrs Gleeson has extensive horse racing connections – her husband’s family owns and runs successful breeding farm Gleeson Thoroughbred Connections at Chinchilla. They also bred one of Queensland’s most recent favourites – galloper Rothfire.
“I love Weetwood, I am so excited for race day and all the excitement int the lead up. Weetwood is so important to the local community – September 25 can’t come quick enough!”
Vanessa will represent Clifford Park at all Weetwood events, including the Weetwood golf day, Breakfast With The Stars, barrier draw, the Weetwood Calcutta sportsman’s lunch and, of course, the Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood race day.
Toowoomba Turf Club congratulates Vanessa on her appointment as 2021 Face Of Weetwood.
“Vanessa, as the Face of Weetwood, will assist with raising the profile of the Audi Centre Toowoomba Weetwood locally as well as interstate,” TTC Chairman Kent Woodford said.
“The community is extremely proud of this event and Vanessa will represent the Weetwood and all associated events with confidence, style and sophistication,” Mr Woodford said.
