Trackside fundraiser win

MORE than 500 people flocked to Burgess Park on the weekend as the highlight of the racing calendar, the 2011 Breast Cancer Race Day, got underway.

The trackside fashion was as stylish as ever with flourishes of pink showing support towards the Breast Cancer Foundation.

The highlight of the day's racing program, the Breast Screen Queensland plate, was taken out in style by Canadian Joy who ran a strong race with QueenofBeaudesert coming in second and Shumie Go in third.

Not only was the race day a social gathering but also an outlet to raise much-needed funds for the Breast Screen Clinic at Toowoomba Hospital at which all mammograms and early detection services are provided for all women in the region of the Lockyer and Darling Downs.

The Toowoomba Hospital Foundation also ran raffles throughout the day to raise money for the foundation.

The Fashions on the Field was as popular as ever with a large proportion of colourful entries all looking to take out best dressed.
