There wasn’t a Fashions on the Field competition but residents donned their racing best for round 2 at the Port Hedland Turf Club last week.

Many families brought picnic blankets for this season’s second day of racing, under clear skies and warm sunlight on Sunday, June 3.

There was an absence of bustling crowds, with most women opting for summer dresses of red and black, while men wore jeans and navy shirts.
