Hills Gazette - - GREEN THUMB -

THE fash­ion stakes will be high at a race com­pe­ti­tion this week­end at Northam Race Club.

The WA Coun­try Cups Fash­ions on the Field re­turns on Sun­day, Oc­to­ber 8, for the 2017 re­gional heat of the statewide chal­lenge.

El­iz­a­beth Winlo won the heat last year to rep­re­sent the Wheat­belt in the fi­nal, where she was placed sec­ond to the Pil­bara’s Sarah McEwan.

The two fash­ion­istas will be on the other side of the ta­ble this year as judges for the Northam heat on Ladies Day at the race club.

Ms Winlo en­cour­aged women to en­ter the com­pe­ti­tion, which offers the top prize of a trip for two to Lon­don and a visit to Royal As­cot.

“Now the weather is warm­ing up and we are of­fi­cially in spring mode, I am keen to see gorgeous ex­am­ples of spring colours and as al­ways the at­ten­tion to de­tail that de­mands the judge’s at­ten­tion; an out­fit that has a wow fac­tor,” she said.

To add to the prize pool, the win­ner will also re­ceive $10,000 spend­ing money from TAB­touch, a di­a­mond piece from Leon Baker Jewellers and a voucher from WA hand­bag and ac­ces­sory la­bel Jes­sica Bratich.

The WA Coun­try Cups Fash­ions on the Field con­sists of nine re­gional heats at ma­jor coun­try race meet­ings across the State, cul­mi­nat­ing in the De­cem­ber 2 fi­nal at Perth Rac­ing.
