'Designer' Wear A Must At Girls Day Out (Goulburn Saturday)

Goulburn's ever popular Girls Day Out race day is on this Saturday and ladies looking for a winner could do no worse than follow local galloper Designer Dance who has genuine "femme form guide" credentials.

The mare is under the care of Goulburn twins Emma & Lucy Longmire and finds a suitable target first up in Race 4, the Argyle Fire Services F&M Class 1 Handicap over 1200m.

The lightly raced mare is well named, being by Master of Design out of Shimmy.

She hit the ground running at her initial campaign with a runner up effort on debut at Wagga behind recent Highway Handicap winner and promising stablemate Feel The Knight. She then went one better in defeating another subsequent "highway' winner and tablelands neighbour Assault'N'Bathory.

Emma Longmire says the stable is looking forward to seeing what the mare can produce this time in.

"She is a mare with some ability and we are looking forward to this preparation with her. We'd like to see her in a Highway this time in," Ms Longmire said.

Despite having no official trials and six months off, the stable is quietly confident she can sprint well fresh over six furlongs.

"She is forward enough for this run and her work here at Goulburn has been pleasing. She hasn't had any official trials, although she has jumped out and has had quite a few gallops leading up to Saturday."

Longmire says importantly the mare couldn't look better - "we are happy with her and she is really looking the part, with no issues going into the run".

Girls Day Out at Goulburn comes hot on the heels of last week's successful Goulburn Cup meeting.

And there will be heels! Thousands of them in fact, with a crowd of close to 3000 expected to roll through the gates for Saturday's six race card that coincides nicely with the strong offering at Rosehill (Golden Gift & Country Classic).

There is also expected to be plenty of designer wear on show trackside in what should be keenly contested fashions on the field events.

The best dressed lady will take home a hand-made diamond ring valued at $2000 whilst the other categories are offering a host of cash prizes and vouchers valued at over a $1000 courtesy of Beachless Beauty and Mitre 10.

The tablelands club has hosted a "million-dollar spring" across five meetings this year with Saturday's Girls Day Out the strawberry on top of some champagne racing in recent months.

Goulburn's track is currently rated a Good 4 with the first race on Girls Day Out timed to go at 1.26pm.
