Most races at Avondale are mid-week events. But yesterday the Counties Racing Club (whose home is Pukekohe) had their big event in Avondale because of problems with their own racecourse. And they did it in style, even a “Fashion in the Field” event (sponsored by Annah Stretton). The picture above seemed to me to best sum up the glamour of the occasion. There were several categories of competition, below part of the lineup under the heading “Fun and Flirtatious”.
