How Do I Become An Owner Ambassador?
The All-Star Mile is innovative, inclusive and a whole lot of fun. As a sports fan, you will now get the chance to experience the thrill of representing a racehorse for yourself.
Ten Owner Ambassadors will be chosen at random from eligible voters to represent each of the top 10 All-Star Mile finalists. A further three Owner Ambassadors will be randomly drawn from eligible voters during the second chance draw for three Wildcard horses. The final Owner Ambassador will be picked through a competition run by The Herald and Weekly Times.
Owner Ambassadors for the top 10 All-Star Mile finalists will be announced on 24 February, 2019. Owner Ambassadors for three Wildcard horses will be announced on 5 March, 2019.
Earlier in the week I shared a story I had written about an amazing young woman I work with, Claire Skerman, an inspiration to anyone not giving up on their dreams. The Herald Sun followed it up & there’s an article in today’s paper Vote for O’tauto & Claire in th All Star Mile pic.twitter.com/OqZ5kRmc8q— abby boyle (@abbyjamesphotog) January 27, 2019
If you’re one of them, you will then become the proud Owner Ambassador of the horse you have drawn in The All-Star Mile. And if your horse wins or runs a place, you’ll share* in $500,000 with $250,000 awarded to the Owner Ambassador of the winning horse.
It’s a Win/Win: not just fame but fortune, too.
So vote for your All-Star…then grab your mates and head out to Flemington to enjoy the big race itself on Saturday March 16.
