Amateur Cup Day

Open Men’s Racewear

This category was only created in 2008 and we are still growing in our entrant numbers.

We encourage the judges to go for a contemporary and spring racing look.

30 & Under

This category was created to encourage the younger generation to have fun and be innovative with their outfits.

We encourage the judges to go for a fresh look that we possibly haven’t seen at the track. Shorter hem lengths are generally accepted.

Open Classic Racewear

This category was an evolution of the first competition.

This is true racewear. No exposed shoulders or cleavage, standard hem lengths. Three or two piece suiting is encouraged.

Best Dressed Couple

We are looking for a couple who could win individuality and together they make a
co-ordinated pair.

This is traditionally a man & woman mix. However we not are adverse to same couple.
