The 139th instalment of the Walcha Cup had a distinct international flavour.
Among the estimated crowd of 1500 people who descended on Walcha Racecourse, on a balmy summer afternoon, were a number of international visitors.
They included Californian duo Shing Kong and Rebecca Ahn.
"This is a unique experience. It's been wonderful," said Oakland native Kong, who is holidaying in Australia.
Nicole Bos, of the Netherlands, was also trackside - where eye-catching summer dresses and arresting headwear dotted the leafy landscape.
Not to be outdone, many of the men also dressed to impress including dapper Catalan Alex de Azuaje-Sanchez.
Walcha Jockey Club president Jim Nivison was overseeing his 23rd Walcha Cup.
Nivison said a large part of the meeting's appeal lay in its "community-orientated" allure.
"A lot of people sort of treat it as a reunion as well," he added. "So a lot of people leave town and come back for it.
"It's just a great catch-up, a great social day."
In the $45,000 feature race, the Stephen Meyer-trained Danza In The Dark (Cobi Vitler) beat the Clint Lundholm-trained Starlink (Ronald Simpson) by half a length.
