Five district women have topped Country Racing Victoria’s competition of fashionable racegoers to take out the best-dressed group for 2013.
The group of regular Echuca racegoers — made up of Rashika Ekeanyanwu, Tamara Cadd, Jackie Michael, Kate Hatfield and Leonie Canham — was snapped in their winning attire in the Moama Bowling Club marquee at the Echuca Races on Melbourne Cup Day last year.
Judges nominated the group’s photo as one of the top 10 best-dressed groups of the 2013 racing season.
The public then voted online for their favourite.
Rashika said the group won the state-wide competition with about 600 votes.
‘‘It came down to us and a group from Kilmore,’’ she said.
She said the win was all the more impressive because the group had not planned on entering the competition and had just been walking past before being asked to be in the photo.
The group won a prize package worth about $5000.
