Photos - Binda Picnic Races

Revellers from across the country attended the annual Binda Picnic Races held at Funny Hill Race Course on Saturday, March 16.

The country meet hosted six races, including the Funny Hill Picnic Cup and the highly contended fashions on the field.

The best-dressed couple, lady and lass was judged by international judges Drew Hamilton, Scotland and Rosalie Tordoir, Nederlands.

Farrah Marolt and Kylie O'Brien were awarded as the best-dressed females, and the best-dressed couple went to Malcolm and Christine Lane-Brown.

Ms Tordoir, said, it was impossible not to chose the female winners who stood out from the crowd.

"We wanted to separate black and white but they just stood out."

The couples were "amazing", "classic", Ms Tordoir said.
