Melbourne alumni among spring racing's women of influence

The Weekly Review interviews women in the racing industry in its latest issue, including University of Melbourne veterinary medicine alumna and former staff member Grace Forbes.

Dr Forbes is Racing Victoria’s veterinary services manager.

“Being a woman has never been an issue in my work,” she told the Weekly Review.

“I taught at the University of Melbourne for a period and by the time I left about 75 per cent of vet science students were female.”

Arts alumni Amanda Elliott and Patricia Faulkner are also featured.
