Fashion in the Field

Fashion and Fun




• The 2018 Condobolin Picnic Races were a huge success. The meet featured $28,000 in prizemoney plus trophies. A highlight of the day was the $8,000 Royal Hotel Picnic Cup, which was won by Spinning Dawn, who is trained by Condobolin’s Steve Beattie, and was ridden by Ricky Blewitt. The victory means the points score will help the horse qualify for the $50,000 Picnic Championship Final at Dubbo in September. The weather was perfect and racegoers were entertained after the last race by Duble. Ladies had their fascinators ready and gentlemen donned their suits, in a bid to capture $1,500 in cash prizes including the RB Sellars Clothing Fashions in the Field.

West Wyalong’s high fashion stakes

Big Day out for West Wyalong and the “Hot to Trot” fashion icons.


The fashion stakes are high in next Sunday’s ( 3 April) West Wyalong Carnival of Cups. Entrants in the West Wyalong Travel/Evolution Cowal Fashions On The Field will be vying for a $1200 cruise for two for the overall winner as well as $2000 in prizes and vouchers to be spread over categories including Best Dressed Woman, runner up and highly commended, Best Dressed Man, Couple, Junior and Most Fascinating Headwear.

Organisers hope the prize will attract more people locally and from throughout the region to help build the event, which is offering an eight race card with $75000 in prize money. There will also be live music from “Straight Outa the Pub”, a jumping castle, face painting, ice cream van and mini trots. Gates Open at 12 noon.

The Easter Saturday race day prelude to the Carnival of Cups saw the prolific winner Sporty Spook provide owners and the crowd with an impressive win in the Tattersalls Hotel Starlite Standing start heat.

Sporty Spook started 60 metres behind the front runner with Sean Snudden’s Classie Mahon starting a massive 70 metres behind. But Sporty Spook had little effort circling the field and powering away to win by 13 metres. Remember Kaiser ran second and It Can Happen ran third. They’ll now be vying for the $12000 final at Sunday’s Carnival of Cups with a gig for the trainer and $1000 for the winning driver. Sporty Spook also won a heat at Wagga, but it is not a given that he will win the final as he’s up against the Dubbo heat winner Oh Jonny B Good from the top Turnbull Stable. Many believe this horse is bound for a future Interdominion.
