Competition was fierce in this year’s Fashions on the Field at Thoroughbred Park.

The ladies and gents put in no shortage of effort – with attention given to every last detail.

But there could only be one winner in the women’s and men’s categories!


Cobie Sheehan took out the women’s category in her stunning navy frock, followed by runner up Alison Jones in her gorgeous floral dress.

The gents also went all out – with Joshua Burgess taking out the top prize with Trong Anh Kim Phan the runner up.


“I got the suit jacket a few weeks ago from a vintage retro stores in QLD while I was there for my best friend’s wedding. I thought it was really unique so I just tried to build around that,” Joshua said.

“The cane is my late grandads – he passed away this year… really unique accessory!”

MIX 106.3 Breakfast co-host and race day Ambassador Kristen Henry said judging was tough.

“You’d think having been a racing ambassador for four years with Thoroughbred Park this job gets easier.. it doesn’t,” she said.

“The fashion this year - outstanding. Congrats to all the winners you hotties!”

As for the big race itself, all eyes were on the champion Canberra entrant.

While Single Gaze didn’t place, there was still plenty of celebrating to be had!

Local schools and businesses got amongst it as well..

Rekindling won the big race, followed by Johannes Vermeer and Max Dynamite.
