Despite being a major name at last year's Melbourne Cup festivities, the former WAG has been quietly removed from the event's website.

She may have been the face of the major racing event last year, but Nadia Bartel has now been removed from the Melbourne Cup’s website.

The page had previously displayed a media release statement confirming the “businesswoman and fashion identity” as one of the event’s ambassadors in October last year, though the page now leads to a ‘404 Not Found’ error message.

It comes following the former WAG’s infamous white powder scandal, in which a video showing Nadia snorting a white substance off a Kmart plate with a group of women was accidentally uploaded to a public Instagram page.

The meet-up took place in Melbourne’s lockdown, meaning she had broken health protocols by meeting up with people she didn’t live with.

She later issued a public apology via Instagram.

While it was thought that Nadia’s recent dramas were the reason behind her being removed from the Melbourne Cup website, it seems that other previous ambassador profiles have also been nixed.

It does, however, coincide with the Spring Racing Carnival’s new partnership with fellow Melbourne WAG, Jessie Murphy, who has partnered with the organisation to promote the welfare of racehorses.

“Marc and I have always loved going to the races for the Victorian @springcarnival,” Jessie wrote in her announcement on Instagram alongside snaps of her previous Melbourne Cup looks.

“Don’t get me wrong, I love getting dressed up and enjoy being trackside with great company, but this year I’ve committed to learning more about the real stars of the track, the horses.

“We are partnering with @springcarnival to get a view of what goes on behind the scenes to ensure horse welfare is paramount. Not just for Spring, but all year round and after retirement.”
