The excitement of the races, getting dressed up and socialising with friends and family combines to make a fantastic day out.

Women all over the world spend time and money on preparing their race day ensemble. Head to toe these ladies miss no detail. And the ladies in the Manawatu are no different.

Saturday 1st April 2017 is the Courtesy Ford Manawatu Sires Produce Raceday. This day is the only Group One raceday at Awapuni. This is the best of the best.

And the highlight of the day... Fashion in the Field. Beautiful ladies have taken the time to prepare what they are wearing and we provide them an opportunity to take part in the event that showcases what race day fashion is all about.

Fashion in the Field - Categories:
- The Contemporary Racegoer
Embracing the more relaxed style of racewear to be found on track, this category looks more towards cocktail styled outfits and are typically accessorised with a fascinator. Think cocktail evening meets daywear, whether it’s the classic LBD or feminine floral frocks.

- The Best Dressed Man
For the sophisticated and well-groomed gentleman. Whether he embraces the traditional suit and tie or puts his own modern twist on men's racewear, the ensemble should be well put together, thoughtful and show some attitude! Attention to details is key from shoes to tie to wristwatch. Hatwear is optional.

- The Classic Lady
The Classic Lady is all about elegance and sophistication. Whether her look is modern or classic, it should embrace traditional ladies racewear. Entrants should be looking towards lady like attire - appropriate hem lengths, bare skin is kept to a minimum. A well-coordinated outfit, attention to detail and accessories should complete a great overall look. Millinery is a must.

Under 25’s.

This is an exciting new category to our event. Let us see your take on this season's trends styled for the races. This young and fabulous new category is open to anyone under the age of 25 who thinks they have what it takes to show off your incredible style and wow our fashion judges.
