IT may have been a day for wearing green, but at Saturday's St Patrick's Day Races all the colours of the rainbow were on display.

Despite the eye catching fillies off the track, it was all eyes on the main race where local jockey Adrian Coome on Sly Sera ran away with the JM Kelly Project Builders Plate.

Race favourite Sly Sera was trained in Toowoomba by Ron Macrae.

Fashions on the Field co-ordinator Claire Valigura said this year's event attracted 62 entrants in four different categories - Best Dressed Woman under 30, won by Larissa McIntosh; Best Dressed Female over 30 won by Rebecca Scotney; Best Dressed Gentleman was Anthony Pianta; and Best Millinery was awarded to Mel Warren in a design by Wendy White from Bush Buddies in Rockhampton.

Ms Valigura said this year's fashions showed a lot of class, leaving judges Natalie Jahnke and Sarah-Jane Watson with a difficult challenge.

St Patrick's Day Race Club secretary John McDevitt said the crowds, atmosphere and weather all worked together to make for a great day in support of Catholic Education.
