With top tem­per­a­tures of 27°C, Townsville’s Win­ter Rac­ing Car­ni­val in July was a lit­tle dif­fer­ent to most.

Frozen mar­gar­i­tas, dress shorts and fans were favourites amongst race­go­ers who ven­tured to the Clu­den Park Race­track for Townsville Jaguar Land Rover Ladies Race Day and The Mater Townsville Cup. The 2018 Fash­ions on the Field rules asked for a nod to win­ter but not a full-on em­brace and gave con­tes­tants a few guide­lines to suit the trop­ics - ‘feel free to leave the stock­ings at home, gloves are op­tional, and shoul­ders can be bare’. Judges were not dis­ap­pointed with the cal­i­bre of fash­ion that pre­sented to them over both days, and af­ter dif­fi­cult de­lib­er­a­tions on Ladies Day de­cided to each choose a wild card on Cup Day to award a prize to if they felt they were un­lucky to miss out on the sash. Prize pools were the largest Townsville had ever seen thanks to Fash­ions on the Field spon­sor Stock­land Townsville, with Style Queen win­ner Ar­riell Scud­eri walk­ing away with over $3,000 in prizes alone. Ar­riel’s cus­tom made out­fit had come to­gether just 2 days ear­lier, thanks to her crafty mother Rae. Event or­gan­is­ers re­ported that at­ten­dance was up from 2017 and thanked ev­ery­one who made the Car­ni­val such a suc­cess.
