DEDERANG RACES: Floral theme a winner for Bec and her mum

IT was a case of like mother, like daughter in the Dederang fashion stakes.

Sherril Scott and her partner Peter Thomas took out best-dressed couple.

Minutes earlier, Sherril’s daughter, Bec Scott, was awarded best-dressed lady in the under-35 category with a similar floral frock.

“Two beauties swept the field today,” Mr Thomas, of Wangaratta, said.

Bec, a fan of bright colours, is no stranger to the fashion circuit, having taken out the same title in 2012.

“I had a bright lemon dress on, you still couldn’t miss me,” she said.

Bec never had a doubt about her chosen outfit, even after her boyfriend questioned her look.

“He said I look like a safety worker, I guess I had the last laugh because I won,” she said.

It wasn’t just the ladies making an impression on the fashion judges.

Young girls dressed to the nines were also much admired.

Mia Sango, 8, stood out in a red and white ensemble, with a matching bow in her hair.

“She has had the dress for a few years and I made the headpiece and crochet bag in the shape of a horse,” mum Michelle Sango said.

Mia was awarded first place in the girls aged 6 to 12 category.

“We like going to the country races,” Mrs Sango said.

“It’s always a good day out because people are friendly and it’s really relaxed.”
