During the race day, which was in support of the MacMillan Cancer Charity, the artist created a pen and ink painting of the famous racehorse Frankel. Leanne was interviewed for television by Mike Cattermole of Channel 4 Racing and the painting was featured on the programme showing her development of the artwork. She also featured in the Yorkshire Press and on BBC Yorkshire radio. Another of her racing prints depicting the 2009 Cheltenham Gold Cup was sold to raise money for the MacMillan Charity.
