What is Team Teal?

The WomenCan Team Teal campaign is a partnership with the Harness Racing industry in Australia and New Zealand. The industry’s advocacy and support of Team Teal is a significant contributor to fundraising for women with ovarian cancer.

The Harness Racing industry is proud of the contribution made by reinswomen and industry sponsors as it is one of the few sports with a balanced representation of women and men. This makes the support of ANZGOG’s research, improving life for women with gynaecological cancer, very relevant.

Across six weeks in February and March each year, all reinswomen race in teal pants to raise awareness and much-needed funds for ovarian cancer research to support the Research Nurse Grant Program and the Survivors Teaching Students education and prevention program.

Each time a race is won by a reinswomen throughout the promotional period, The Creek, Racing Queensland and Redcliffe Harness Racing Clubs will donate $200 which is matched by Tabcorp.

2022 Ambassadors:

Chloe Butler 

Teal Silks

Daughter of leading trainer Jack Butler, Chloe has made a name for herself in recent years finishing in the top 10 junior drivers in Queensland for the past two seasons. Has also turned her hand to training successfully recording a 40% starters to placings strike rate so far in her career.

"I look forward to participating in Team Teal again this year because it shines a light on this terrible disease, helping to raise finds and awareness, so as we can limit its impact on the community."

Narissa McMullen

White Silks

Like her brother Peter, Narissa McMullen had little choice than to follow a career in harness racing as a result of her family history in the sport. Narissa has been a dominant driver for a number of years in Queensland, recently notching up her 1000th winner at just 26-years-old. The Australasian Young Drivers Championship winner is also a Group 2 winner, coming thanks to the 2015 Lady Drivers Invitation at Menangle.

“I look forward to participating in team teal as the campaign highlights the significant contribution of women in the harness racing industry while raising funds and awareness for such an important cause.’
