Fillies Frock Up at Yeppoon


FASHIONS in the Field with some catchy categories will be one of the highlights of the Yeppoon Turf Clubas GJ Gardner Homes Yeppoon Cup meeting at Keppel Park racecourse tomorrow week.

More than $3000 in prizes, organised by Yeppoonas Rhonda Hall and supplied generously by local business houses will be up for grabs.

Trish Simpson, the wife of club chairman Greg, said the Fashions in the Field had grown in stature at Keppel Park at recent feature meetings.

While it may be judged discriminatory, there is no Champion Gelding category in the Fashion in the Field at Yeppoon.

aI very much doubt if we would have gotten an entry,a Greg Simpson said with tongue in cheek.

As well, there will be a jumping castle and face-painting for the kids while letas hope the oldies donat get faceless at the cocktail bar and well stocked bar.

Just in case they do have atwo too manya a free courtesy bus will carry the livestock back to Yeppoon after the races.

There are five local races on as well at Keppel Park with the YTC upping the prizemoney to $12,500 for the Cup (1400m).

Scott Power will broadcast the race named in honour of his father, the Ken Power Memorial. …
