Weekend Wine Racing

Who said country racing in Queensland is dead? Amongst almost 3000 gathered at Stanthorpe's Armstrong Park for the annual Cup Day was this group of eight.

A far more attractive bunch than the other G8, these Gold Coast gals call themselves "The Wine Club". They reported having such a fun weekend they've already started planning their return visit for the 2010 Stanthorpe Cup. Doubtless too they will be planning their wardrobes. One filly, Meredith Blackmore (right), was pipped at the post in the Fashions of the Field this year, defeat she takes as a challenge for her return visit to the Granite Belt.
