Attention fashionable fillies - 2018/19 calendar released


With the new season upon us - we've turned our attention to one of the highlights of racedays for many... the fashion.

All roads for fashions in the field events in New Zealand lead to The Ned Prix de Fashion - the national fashions in the field final - set to take centre stage here at Ellerslie Racecourse on Saturday 2 March 2019, as a part of Auckland Cup Week.

But before the big day, there's an entire season of racewear competitions to be entered and, luckily for you, we've taken away the hard work and listed them below.

Get your Outlook open and make sure to add the below regional competition dates to the calendar. If you win one of these, you'll automatically qualify for the regional final of The Ned Prix de Fashion where you'll get the chance to walk away with the big prize and the ultimate title.

The lucky lady crowned the Supreme Winner of The Ned Prix de Fashion 2019 will also get the chance to compete in Melbourne in MYER Fashions on the Field at the Melbourne Cup Carnival 2019.
