On The Rails: Scone Cup 2019

Neither of us would win anything in the fashion stakes! Perhaps 50 years ago? There were very few patrons dressed as Bill and I were but we both elected to stay ‘on the rails’ for the Cup Races. Alternatives were the ‘élite, exclusive, expensive and fashionable’ marquee options. I cannot justify such expenditure; much less my cautious and prudent spouse! I simply don’t last the distance either rising 77.
However, judging by the ‘official’ reports of the meeting as contained in photo montages of the carnival the fashion stakes were the main event! Hospitality and vogue style dominated the festival! By the way ‘Special Missile’ won the Scone Cup Race; but I can hardly locate a photographic record?
