2022 Longreach Cup Fashions On The Field

Tue 2 August 2022

We promised there would be some more teasers for our September Cup meeting, and we are delivering! Thanks to The Southport School, we now have $15,000 in prizemoney and prizes on offer at our Longreach Cup Meeting! And we are extremely excited to introduce our special guest judge, Mildred Ellwood!


Ms Ellwood is well-known as a judge and entrant in Fashions on the Field racing events across Australia and has long had a passion for creative self-expression through fashion.


“My love affair with fashion and the arts began as a little girl in Zambia where I grew up intently watching my grandmother make beaded bracelets and tribal necklaces, and my uncle, who weaved baskets from a range of natural fibres including grass, sisal, raffia and banana leaves,” she said.


Stay tuned for more exciting news regarding out Longreach Cup, and in the meantime, find out more about Mildred below!
