The 27-year-old Sydneysider, who & # 39; happy & # 39; was with the appointment, could not foresee the hate reactions that her single function would generate.

& # 39; So & # 39; n terrible industry that uses horses as a commodity, & # 39; one person noted.

& # 39; Learn more about the & # 39; sport & # 39; for which you are an ambassador. This race and all horse racing is disgusting. So many horses are being killed and abused and you are all proud to think that this is oh so glamorous – it isn't, & another one said.

& # 39; This horror show is my least favorite day of the year! I can't help but I think if these & # 39; celebrities & # 39; no longer being ambassadors and throwing their support behind it - it can completely lose its appeal, & a third added

& # 39; Kyle and I have countless rescued racehorses, so I can't say anything … Such a terrible and barbaric event for the poor beautiful, defenseless horses involved … Even the ones you are on picture is, can be flogged and shot at the end.

& # 39; Anyway, hopefully the industry can clear its way one day. It's not your fault honey – you just do a job, but we just want people to recognize what it really is for these horses … pure and pure torture. & # 39;

Despite the backlash, Tegan received a number of supporting messages from her friends in the modeling industry, including Olivia Molly Rodgers and Erin Holland.
