FASHION STEALS SHOW
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.
