Set for Seymour Cup

By David Rak

Casey Young is the new ambassador for the 2019 Seymour Cup.

Casey won her first Fashions on the Field (FOTF) event at Kyneton in 2017 and has won and placed in numerous other country FOTF events.

The 20-year-old works part time for Seymour and Kilmore Toyota but spends most of her time as a model.

She has been an extra in the new Ned Kelly movie as well as for Ride Like A Girl, Miss Fisher and the Crypt of Tears and Playing for Keeps.

Casey has also competed in many pageants including Miss Tourist Australia where she made it to the last five of 1000 girls, Top Model Australia where she made top 10 and Country Victoria Modelling, representing Victoria.

Seymour Racing Club operations officer Jess Jackson said the club was thrilled to welcome Casey as ambassador for the 2019 bet365 Seymour Cup.

“We’re thrilled partly because Casey has a list of overwhelming achievements, but also because of her willingness and positive attitude,” she said.

“Casey is a very humble person who has shown a dedication to our community, being the Kilmore Cup ambassador in 2018 and completing works for the Polished Man charity.

“Casey will be on course at the Seymour Cup to help support all those who are entering the Georgina and Co Fashions on the Field.

“She has mentioned she is super excited to see all the local ladies compete for more than $2400 for first prize and $1300 for runner-up in the Local Lady of the Day event (open only to those residing in the Mitchell Shire).”

The Seymour Cup is on October 20. For more information, visit country.racing.com/seymour
