Peel region winner takes WA Fashions on the Field crown

A Peel region local will enjoy a racing holiday for two in London after being crowned the winner of the WA Fashions on the Field on Saturday.

Bernadette May dazzled judges at the Winterbottom Race Day at Ascot after winning the regional heat at the Pinjarra Race Club in February.

Ms May was up against finalists from other regional heats across the state, including the Great Southern, South West, Gascoyne, Pilbara, Kimberley, Goldfields, Midwest and Wheatbelt, as well as three wildcard entries chosen by the public.

Ms May will enjoy a racing holiday for two to London to attend Royal Ascot thanks to Motive Travel, $10,000 spending money from TABtouch and $5,000 worth of jewellery from Linneys' Jewellers.

Ms May said her win came down to luck.

"Luck that you don't fall off the stage and luck that the judges love your style as much as you do," she said.

"I already felt like a winner, so to be able win the final was a dream come true.

"It was already a prize for me to come here and have this weekend with the other finalists."

Second place was taken out by the Wheatbelt's Bethany Brajkovich and third place was won by Emma Billett representing the Pilbara region.

The WA Fashions on the Field Final judges included fashion, fitness and lifestyle blogger Agatha Wichert, WA fashion stylist Bryan Smith, Perth blogger Melissa Graham, Meraki director Samantha Wyllie and TAB representative Matthew Thomas.

Racing and Wagering WA general manager Charlotte Mills said the event untied country and city racing.

"WA has one of the largest country racing precincts in the world, with 35 regional thoroughbred race clubs spread across the State," she said.

"WA Fashions on the Field brings us a taste of this, whilst also shining a light on racing fashion and the impact it has had on Australian thoroughbred racing history and culture."
