Fashions on the Field

With some amazing prizes up for grabs, our Fashions on the Field competition is hotly contested each and every year. The 2024 FOTF competition features categories for males and females of all ages. Our winners are selected by a panel of three guest judges.

2024 Prize pool

In 2024, our main category, Colleen of the Course (ladies aged 18-39 years), once again offers a $1,000 CASH PRIZE, courtesy of the Ormandy family in memory of their mother, Joy.

All other categories attract a wonderful prize pool of vouchers and products from local business houses.

How to enter

Entrants are to present to the back of the Mick Robins Grandstand following race 1 for an immediate start. No prior nomination is necessary.
