Georgie Coram is the 2023 Pearl Kelly Award winner.

Coram was presented with the state's most prestigious honour for female participants during Saturday night's Victorian Harness Racing Awards function at Melton Entertainment Park.

The award recognises the outstanding contribution to, or achievement within, the sport by a woman.

It was struck in acknowledgement of Kelly, who was Australia’s first licensed reinswoman in 1916 and once finished third on the Melbourne drivers’ premiership.

“I'm speechless,” Coram said. “That's all I can say: thankyou.

“I love harness racing. It's part of my life and I breathe it and I live it.”
