Fashion at the races

From wedding proposals to producing multiple Fashion At The Races (FATR) sash winners both locally and interstate, the Millicent Cup is an event that should be marked on the calendar for the fashion conscious.

In what is set to be a great day on and off the track, the Millicent Racing Club will hold its 2022 FATR event at the 3MP Millicent Cup on Sunday May 29 at the Allan Scott Glenburnie Racecourse.

Millicent FATR organiser Helen Varcoe said it was a great opportunity for the first timers to get involved.

“The Millicent Cup is all about having a go and being involved,” she said.

“It’s a relaxing atmosphere, but overall an experience we extend to those experienced entrants and those who may have put it off for whatever reason.

The judges for the day have been secured and they both have an established fashion resume of their own.

Sharon Lee Smith has experience with both judging and winning many sashes, including the Adelaide Cup at Morphettville.

Another well known fashionista is Kimmi Tinknell who has a number of sashes to go along with representing South Australia in the Myer national competition in 2018.

On the day the Millicent Racing Club has secured the services of photographer Steve Chapple who will capture the outfits on display.

Ladies, Mens, Duos and Teens and Tots prizes will be on offer and registrations open from 11:30am with and photography will be held in the 3MP Marquee.
