Eighty-year-old Clare Nolan was over the moon to take out the Mature Ladies division at the Kempsey Cup Fashions on the Field.

There were several categories for men and women and, for the first time this year, a section for the children.

The Fillies of the Field (ladies aged 18-29 years) was hotly contested, so too was the Colt on the Course (men under 30 years). 

Clare Nolan was up against women over 50 in the Mature category, sporting a fascinator in her favourite autumn tones.  Her flowing dress featured similar orange and brown tones.

She’s always been interested in fashion and 20 years ago won her category in a white dress topped with a vibrant orange hat.

Clare was delighted to see so many entrants in the Fashions on the Field which rivalled the race track for numbers of cheering spectators.

“There are some fantastic fashions on show today.  The organisers have done an amazing job and everybody has made a real effort.”
