Roses and equines and hats; oh my! At their gala launch, the Melbourne Racing Club recently announced the talented and down-to-earth (as well as beautiful – darn her) Erika Heynatz as their style ambassador for Caulfield‘s 2013 Spring Racing Carnival. It’s a safe bet that she will wear the role - and many outfits – over the trio of major race-days at the track exceedingly well. The countdown to the carnival, and finding an arsenal of racewear outfits, has officially started.
You know I’m fond of a sneak peek; thus I hope to see many of you in your finery this Saturday for Carnival Preview Day. Don’t forget the Fashion Stakes begin at 1 o’clock for we mere spectators. It’s also good etiquette to at least watch the race du jour. For the Underwood Stakes I’m tipping Puissance De Lune (picked by my very strategic method of its name being French and referencing space). No rain is forecast at this stage but if you want to play it safe perhaps take delicious shelter with a booking at the shiny new Black Caviar restaurant (Ian Curley of The European is resident chef).
