North West Telegraph - - North West Lifestyle - Sophia Con­stan­tine

The Mel­bourne Cup did not dis­ap­point last week, with hun­dreds of Port Hed­land pun­ters turn­ing out to watch the race that stops the na­tion.

Rekin­dling made his way into the his­tory books, crowned as the win­ner of the 2017 Mel­bourne Cup, fol­lowed by Jo­hannes Ver­meer and Max Dy­na­mite.

North West Tele­graph took to the Es­planade Ho­tel to cap­ture some of the ac­tion. Es­planade Ho­tel Sales mar­ket­ing and events co-or­di­na­tor Brigid Bo­s­tock said staff were en­cour­aged by the suc­cess of the event and hoped to con­tinue their ef­forts to pro­vide an even big­ger and bet­ter event in the years to come.

The ho­tel put on a themed menu with drink spe­cials, sweeps, and prizes for best dressed.

“We were re­ally happy with the turnout,” she said.

“We got some great feed­back from the menu and pro­vided a sweep sta­tion for the first time which was re­ally pop­u­lar.”

She said the stan­dard of dress of both men and women was out­stand­ing, mak­ing it an­other year of stiff com­pe­ti­tion for the best-dressed com­pe­ti­tion, with all of the Pil­bara ladies and gen­tle­men com­ing dressed to im­press.

Chad Gray took out best dressed male and Char­line Ital­iano won the votes for best dressed fe­male.

The Walk­a­bout Ho­tel did not shy away from the fun, open­ing its TAB, bar, and restau­rant for a day of rac­ing fun.

The stan­dard of dress gave the staff at the Es­planade Ho­tel the tricky task of pick­ing the best dressed fe­male.

Katie Evans, Nur Ha­lik, Jess Ma­hon, and Steph Ma­hon.

Char­line Ital­iano was cho­sen as the best dressed fe­male at the com­pe­ti­tion.
