THE stakes have never been higher at Rosehill Gardens — the fashion stakes, that is.
There will be reputations, rather than money, at stake when the Fashions on the Field contest gets under way.
Women will have the chance to show off their frocks, while the event gives the men (even though they can't officially enter) an excuse to suit up.
Zoe Balbi, fiancee of West Tigers star Benji Marshall, will be a guest judge on the day.
The model/television presenter, along with celebrity stylist Kai Aiyub, will pick the standout fashionista among the contestants.
As well as being crowned the fashion queen of the race track, the winner will also win $15,000.
Racegoers will also have a chance to vote for their favourite contestant.
One voter will win $2000 on the day.
The first 3000 women on course will receive a gift bag full of goods worth more than $75.
The Group 2 Stan Fox Stakes will be the feature race.
