All Fashions on the Field sections were hotly contested, proving its growing popularity.

The effort that went into the outfits at the annual Gold Cup on Saturday did not got unnoticed, with many donning special outfits.

Colour seemed to be the order of the day with a wide range of hues, patterns and styles seen trackside.

Some of the most colourful and elegant racegoers made their way to the judging stage to take part in the renowned Fashions on the Field competitions.

Perfect weather, stunning ladies, stylish gents and local success on the track — the community couldn’t have asked for a better Berrigan Gold Cup for 2012.

While there were plenty of visitors in the region, it was a day for local celebration.

It was a moss-inspired, light purple dress and matching fascinator that caught the eye of the judges in the ladies’ section, and a black and red classic look with an edge that caught the prize for the younger category.

Two grey suits paired with matching accessories won the judges over in the men’s section.

In the couples’ section it was a black suit and blue dress that sealed the win for Barb Kerr and Greg Patrick.
