Packed to the seams

An estimated crowd of 4,000 people attended the running of the 61st annual Louth Races on Saturday at Louth. A quality field was nominated for this year’s seven race program with the Rodney Robb-trained Austin a big winner of this year’s Louth Cup. With Louth a predominately wool growing community, the races’ Fashions on the Field event has a focus on both wool and fashion. This year’s Best Dressed Ladies’ and Men’s winners were former Cobar resident Josie Anderson and Peter Whitehead from Coonamble. ▪ Photo contributed
