The Nick’s FixIt Fashions on the Field competition uses a judge nominated process. Our judges will be ‘roaming the field’ between 12:30p.m.- 2:30p.m. looking for potential finalists. Finalists will be asked to meet at the stage for marshalling at the nominated time and will be required to parade on stage where the winners will be announced and prizes awarded. The final announcements will occur between the 3rd & 4th races, exact times will be provided to the finalists on the day.

MOST OUTSTANDING HEADWEAR
