Cairns Amateurs 2016 Wrap Day 1

What happens when you mix three action packed days in Cairns, a whole lotta fun and five functions? You get a lot of outfit panic at the Carlton Mid Cairns Amateurs Carnival! I was lucky enough to head up to Cairns to enjoy my fourth carnival and be a part of the judging panel for...

After a few trips to Australia earlier in the year, it was time for another OTOT reunion – though this time it was Angela’s turn to make the long-haul flight, and of course she timed it impeccably to arrive the day before one of the biggest and most glamorous days of British racing: the Epsom...

Fashion at the Ebor: the dire future of UK’s Fashion(s) on the Field

Both tracks host major four-day racing carnivals, with York’s Ebor Festival run over consecutive days in August, while Flemington hosts the Melbourne Cup Carnival over eight days in October and November. The courses themselves are similar:...
