Carlton Mid Cairns Amateurs Carnival 2016 – IT’S A WRAP!

A record crowd well exceeding the expected 10,000 mark topped off this year’s 58th Cairns Amateurs Carnival at Cannon Park yesterday. All the fascinators and finery of QT’s Fashions on the Field once again provided a colourful and competitive highlight in its new location under the trees.  Competition on the catwalk was declared ‘very strong’ by the panel of four visiting judges while over at the track, some 90 horses competed in eight races throughout the afternoon with the sixth race, Carlton Mid Amateurs Cup Open going to Rocknet trained by Townsville’s Tony Comerford and ridden by Nathan Day.

QT Fashions on the Field were once again hotly contested with local judge Stacie Galeano commenting how each section posed a difficult decision and was a case of splitting hairs to determine a winner. Prize winners were predominantly pretty, spring time palette combinations showing a balanced silhouette from head to toe along with the latest seasonal trends of sheer overlays, trumpet sleeves and pastels.
