The sun was shining and the sky was blue. The crowds were out, in family and corporate groups. Marquees and lawn areas filled with life after a two year hiatus. Food and fashion, frivolity and fun.
Nearly 11,000 racegoers doing their bit to reinvigorate Geelong. Fillies and favourites, furlongs and failure, it cannot be a fairytale for all, regardless of the hard work and preparation. Emissary won the main race, Andrea Moore won Fashions On The Field.
However the overall winner was Geelong Racing Club and the flow on effect for everyone when an event is such a great success. Jacinta Foster-Raimondo
