Kerryn Manning's outstanding on-track deeds were celebrated at Tabcorp Park Melton on Saturday night when the female drivers' rooms were officially named in her honour.

Only days after she became the first female driver or jockey in the world to eclipse 4000 driving wins, Manning was also awarded a commemorative frame, commisioned by Harness Racing Victoria, that celebrated her feat.

Aided by reinsmen John Caldow and Mick Bellman, Trots Vision on-track host Rob Auber made the presentation and explained why the female change rooms were so deserving of baring Kerryn's name.

"This was the drivers' room that once you owned by yourself, now you've got to share it with lots and lots of very talented women," Auber said. "It's only fitting that we name the ladies' drivers' room in your honour."

A chuffed Manning said "that's really really special that is".

"Hopefully Mick Bellman doesn't write something on it, I'll know who did if he does," she laughed. "That's really really nice."
