THE horses were in fine form and so were the fash­ion­istas as thou­sands flocked to the track at the Tweed River Jockey Club on Mel­bourne Cup day.

Race­go­ers rev­elled in the pic­nic at­mos­phere, watch­ing lo­cal races and also bet­ting on Tab-screened events.

But it was the ladies who stole the show.

This year’s haute cou­ture win­ner upped the ante from her 2017 run­ner-up sta­tus to be first past the post in the fash­ions on the field.

“I love the fash­ion at the races and I came run­ner-up last year (at Mur­willum­bah) and I wanted to spice it up this year,” win­ner Jazz Lathouras said.

“I scrolled on In­sta­gram for in­spi­ra­tion and thought what I found was a win­ning out­fit.”

The Mur­willum­bah crowds cheered on their favourite horses as Cross Counter crossed the fin­ish­ing line at Flem­ing­ton.


DRESSED TO IM­PRESS: The con­tes­tants from the Part­ners Fash­ion on the Field event.

Graeme Lewis, ‘Obe Wan Konobi’, Steve Wat­son and Brett O’brien strut their stuff.
