To keep with the theme, Melbourne brought cool and damp weather conditions to the last day of the Melbourne Cup Carnival. And again, to keep with the theme, guests were not fazed, and the day was a great success.

Magic Wand, ridden by Ryan Moore, came out on top, followed by Melody Belle in 2nd and Hartnell taking out 3rd position.


Styles on the Straight saw bright colours and florals for the women’s category and a range of greys and colours for the men.

We had representatives from Diana Ferrari and the VRC join us to guest judge. A big thank you to Stephanie Jackson and Olivia Andolfatto from Diana Ferrari and Sara Handley from the VRC for joining us.
