SPRING RACES ON TRACK IN GAYNDAH
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.
