Central and North Burnett Times - - FRONT PAGE -

THE Gayn­dah Jockey Club’s spring race meet­ing is known for a num­ber of things in­clud­ing the vi­brancy cre­ated from the Fash­ions on the Field com­pe­ti­tion.

This Satur­day will have the Re­gional Fash­ions on the Field ar­rive in Gayn­dah with the win­ner and run­ner-up of each cat­e­gory re­ceiv­ing points to­wards be­com­ing the Re­gional Fash­ions on the Field win­ner.

Each win­ner will also re­ceive an Ea­gle Farm Race Day pack­age and ac­com­mo­da­tion for two to at­tend Oaks Day on June 2, next year and the chance to be­come the North Bur­nett Race Day Am­bas­sador.

Each prize is val­ued at over $500.

The cat­e­gories are Best Dressed Lady and Best Dressed Gen­tle­man.

Owner of Biggen­den busi­ness Deb’s Coun­try Out­fit­ters Deb­bie Frampton al­ways has a spike in busi­ness in the lead-up to the spring races.

“I find there is more range to choose from when it is spring rac­ing,” Mrs Frampton said.

“Colour and style play a big part in a good race day out­fit.”

The win­ners of each Fash­ions on the Field will at­tend the Eidsvold Races on Satur­day, Fe­bru­ary 17 next year.

Narelle Em­mer­ton has over­seen past Fash­ions of the Field com­pe­ti­tions in Gayn­dah and said it had a great role to play in the over­all race day.

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

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

There will also be food plat­ters and a ta­ble avail­able for pur­chase at $50 from the Gayn­dah Jockey Club.
