About Auburn Bowls Club Guest Speaker Leigh Woodgate

Leigh Woodgate

The Woman from the Snowy

This Melbourne Cup Eve, we are combining our famous Wine & Cheese evening with a very special event for members and their family and friends, with guest speaker Leigh Woodgate.

In the early 1990s, Leigh was a champion steeplechase jockey, and the only woman to win the Great Mountain Race in the Victorian High Country. On 1 July 1994, Leigh suffered a life-threatening fall from her mount during a race that was broadcast nationally. Her injuries were horrific – nearly every bone was broken, both lungs were punctured, she had brain damage, a detached retina, and she spent 17 days in a coma.

This is not about racing: It’s the truly inspiring story of a young woman’s fight for survival and her strength and courage against the odds, and against horrendous injuries and pain.

It’s a story of determination, and it will leave you inspired.
