With less than a month to go until the Mortlake Cup preparations for the November 3 event are in full swing.
The Mortlake Racing Club has this week announced Ellin Stewart as the Mortlake Cup ambassador.
Ms Stewart is originally from Mortlake and now runs her own business in Warrnambool, Beautiful Creatures Makeup & Beauty.
“Growing up in town it has always been a great chance to come back and catch up with familiar faces on the day and to be an ambassador is an absolute privilege,” Ms Stewart said.
President Jason Hughes said they were working hard to ensure the town’s biggest event of the year was a success and said tickets and marquee packages were selling well. “It’s once again shaping up to be a great day.”
