Its Brisbane Racing Carnival and ANY chance my girlfriend Chelsea and I get to go to the races, we take full advantage of...
What girl wouldn't?? You get to drink lots of champagne, dress up and wear a fascinator....oh and you may even see some horses race! lol
This time Chelsea knew of a group of 40 or so lovely ladies that had planned a day at Doomben for Oaks Day and we were able to join them.
We had an absolute ball, we all caught a bus in together but Chelsea and I spent majority of the day pottering around here, there and everywhere. We ended up getting free champagne, free tappas, free shoe inserts (for sore feet), we had a meet and greet with the stunning X-factor star Samantha Jade and even entered Fashions of the Field for some fun, in which by some fluke I made the finals.
Another thing we did without even meaning to do was enter a competition to have our face on a Billboard to promote the upcoming Stradboke Cup Day, and funnily enough we actually won. There were a handful of people chosen and we were two of them..hilarious!!! :-)
We placed a decent number of bets on the horses and won a total of $12!!! lol
Here are some pics of the girlie fun we had track side....
