The annual Channel Seven Brisbane Racing Carnival presented by TAB, is upon us. With the change in season comes the familiar sound of soaring hooves, training hard and preparing for some of the biggest racing events of the year. Tickets are now on sale for May and June, presenting five extraordinary race days to choose from at Eagle Farm and Doomben Racecourses, each with a distinct fashion theme to follow.

We’re confident this year’s styles are set to stun with 2019 fashion themes moving away from traditional sinamay fascinators and towards felt, velvet, leather and wool fabrics. The word on the street is that judges will be looking for closed toed shoes, hats and covered shoulders, leaving anything straw at home with last season’s outfit. Tailored and timeless racewear will be on show, with every man, woman and stallion coming ready for the Fashion on the Field runway. What better place to flaunt your fashion than at one of these epic racing events? No matter which race day you choose, it’s set to be unforgettable, both on and off the track. From fashion to field, each racing event features decadent winter menus, specially curated for the day, beverages galore and energetic live entertainment. So, which day are you going to?
