Tips for race day

Central and North Burnett Times - - GAYNDAH RACES -

WHEN think­ing about the races, two things will gen­er­ally come to mind: the horses and the fash­ions on the field.

This year is no dif­fer­ent.

Fash­ions on the field co-or­di­na­tor Narelle Em­mer­ton said the com­pe­ti­tion played an im­por­tant part in race days.

“When you get two race days a year it’s al­ways great for the ladies and gen­tle­man to be able to get dressed up,” Mrs Em­mer­ton said.

“I think it is just a good ex­cuse for it be­cause we don’t of­ten get the chance to, it’s great to have a rea­son.”

Mrs Em­mer­ton said the fash­ions on the field were de­signed to bring a lit­tle fun and hu­mour to the day.

When it came to pick­ing the right out­fit, Mrs Em­mer­ton had some tips.

“Keep it classy, es­pe­cially be­cause it is win­ter, maybe think about which hat or fas­ci­na­tor is a win­ter ac­ces­sory,” Mrs Em­mer­ton said.

“It’s not so much about how long or short the dress is, it’s more about the class of the whole out­fit it­self.”
