The Weekend Post - Cairns Eye - - Front Page - WORDS:

All I wanted for Christ­mas was to en­joy bub­bles, fash­ion and racing one fi­nal time for the year, and I got my wish at the Ev­ery­thing Au­to­mo­tive Christ­mas Race Day party at the Cairns Jockey Club.

I had a very im­por­tant role for the last race day of 2017 and that was to judge fash­ions on the field. Ladies and gents got right into the Christ­mas spirit, ex­press­ing their love of the silly sea­son through their at­tire.

One gor­geous lady came dressed as a Christ­mas present with her gift-printed jump­suit and green bow fas­ci­na­tor to match. I over­heard an­other race­goer talk­ing about her hand­crafted, gen­uine os­trich feather percher. The pom pom alone took the well-known lo­cal milliner eight hours to make. Reg­u­lar race­goer Ta­mara Or­tiz said she loved the fes­tive at­mos­phere. “The Christ­mas races are al­ways so much fun with great fash­ion and even bet­ter peo­ple,” she said. “It was a great day, very re­laxed and the per­fect way to wrap up the racing year.”
