Fashionistas and punters flock to Caulfield Cup

THE heels, stakes and fascinators were high at Callaghan Park yesterday as punters and fashionistas flocked trackside to soak up the country racing atmosphere of St Peter's Caulfield Cup.

With the biggest patronage for over five years, 5000 people headed to Callaghan Park to get a glimpse of all the action on and off the track.

For Rockhampton's Laura Jarman-Carrigg the day was extra exciting with the fashions on the field veteran taking out the millinery award at the St Peter's birdcage.

Mrs Jarman-Carrigg had posed some strong competition at local race days for the past four years but said winning fashions on the field was only part of the fun of a day at the races.

"I don't take it to heart, you win some and you lose some," she said.

"Fashions on the field is quite competitive."

Look out for the Caulfield Cup social snaps on the Morning Bulletin website.
