Race on for the best-dressed

Benalla Ensign - - Front Page - By Ge­or­gia Smith

If the Be­nalla Gold Cup is the place to be seen on Septem­ber 28, one of the big­gest things to see when you get there would be the Be­nalla Travel Fash­ions on the Field.

A long-term sup­porter of the rac­ing club and the town, di­rec­tor Fiona Stephens and her team at Be­nalla Travel have been the ma­jor spon­sor of the fash­ion spec­tac­u­lar for more than 18 years.

And with $1000 travel vouch­ers up for grabs in both the Clas­sic Ladies Racewear and Clas­sic Men’s Racewear cat­e­gories this year, the com­pe­ti­tion is ex­pected to be just as com­pet­i­tive off the track as on it.

Be­nalla Travel has added $2000 worth of prizes in to­tal and with other spon­sors there will be more than $4000 to be won across the fash­ion cat­e­gories.

So now is the time to think about last-minute ad­di­tions to your wardrobe, and make sure your new fas­ci­na­tors will be ready in time, for your chance to shine on the Be­nalla Travel Fash­ions on the Fields.

Fiona said the Be­nalla Gold Cup and the Be­nalla Travel Fash­ions on the Fields were high­lights that at­tracted peo­ple from around the re­gion as well as Mel­bourne.

She said with the Spring Car­ni­val in full swing – and the Mel­bourne Cup five weeks after Be­nalla — it made the day here a ma­jor oc­ca­sion.

‘‘Lots of peo­ple at­tend coun­try races in prepa­ra­tion for the Mel­bourne Cup car­ni­val so the qual­ity is al­ways there and the fash­ions are great,’’ Fiona said.

‘‘It’s re­ally great to see such strong com­mu­nity sup­port for coun­try rac­ing days such as ours and Be­nalla Travel is proud to sup­port this im­por­tant event,’’ she added.
