Dust off those fascinators, ladies, it’s time to get frocked.

All racing meets may have been called off in Broome and Derby because of coronavirus restrictions, but that will not stop our Kimberley women from showing off their cup-day best.

Fashionistas across the region will next week have the chance to enter an online WA Fashions on the Field contest, with a 2021 trip to London up for grabs.

Different heats will be held for each region, with 12 finalists competing for the top prize in November.

Kimberley entrants will need to submit pictures of their outfits between Monday and May 10.

Broome Turf Club manager Paul Rossiter said he was excited a great tradition of the town’s racing season could still be continued.

“People are saying there’s nothing to do, no reason to dress up — well now there is,” he said.

“The response to this has been overwhelming, which is so encouraging because everyone has been in disbelief since the 2020 season had to be called off.”

The Racing and Wagering WA competition will replace the organisation’s regular Fashions on the Field events at racecourses around the State.
