We take great delight in announcing that Barrie Scott was awarded Life Membership at the MDRC Annual General Meeting held on 11 October 2017...

Barrie Scott has been an integral part of the Mansfield District Racing Club for the past ten years in a number of significant roles. Currently she holds the position as Treasurer but her main love is horses and her dedication to maintaining the stables and caring for trainers, stable hands, and the like on race days has been remarkable. Raised in Melbourne, Barrie was drawn to the district for the alpine environment and recreational skiing and with husband David eventually acquired a property on the Broken River - they have been farming there since 1978. Barrie's background includes roles as teacher, psychologist and roustabout. Her keen interest in racing and breeding comes from her mother's own involvement in race horses. She is passionate about the industry and promoting local participation.
