As an industry, racing has long understood the power it possesses to unite communities and engender hope across Queensland.
As part of an ongoing series, we turn the spotlight on our female participants, who are changing the face of racing in the Sunshine State.
They range from barrier attendants to photo-finish operators and the growing number of selfless women presidents and chairs who volunteer their time - for the love of the sport.
In Racing Queensland's Unsung Heroes, 'Women In Racing" series, we shine a light on their accomplishments, and in the process, hope that others will follow in their footsteps.
These are their stories.
