Flirting with victory

04 Feb 2013

Flirting with victory Image

If Georgina Wakim’s New Year’s Day is anything to go by, the rest of 2013 should be a pretty good year for her.

Georgina is part owner of Flirtatious, a three-year-old chestnut filly that came first in race five at Mornington on New Year’s Day.

Georgina is also captain of Docklands-based dragon boat team, the Melbourne Flames.

Fellow Melbourne Flame, Desma Smith and Channel Nine marketing executive Michelle Stamper are also part owners of Flirtatious.  

The three Docklanders are part of an all-female syndicate made up of about 30 women from around Australia.

According to Georgina, being involved with the syndicate is all about fun and socialising.

“We love the glamorous part of it,” she said.

 “We like to get out there and enjoy all the different aspects of horseracing,”

The lucky owners who were at Mornington on New Year’s Day witnessed Flirtatious

win first place for the second time in her racing career.

“It was a great start to the new year,” Georgina said.

And with her connections to the area, we’re certain Flirtatious is set to become Docklands’ favourite filly.
