From colourful fascinators to snappy suits there was plenty of race day style on show.
Once again the Fashions on the Field was hotly contested. The best dressed gent was Addison Sharpe and the runner up Robindro Chatterji. Winner of the women’s Fashion on the Field was April Gallagher and the runner up Elise Gucul.
