Sarah Cox drew inspiration from someone very close to her heart when she put her Wodonga Gold Cup day look together.
The Millinery Award winner dedicated the achievement to her later mum, Janet.
"A lot of the inspiration in the way I put the outfits together with my millinery is from her," Ms Cox said.
"She was very into the fashion scene and dressed very elegantly.
"She won fashions on the field a couple of times.
"I really valued her opinion."
The daughter of late leading Wodonga trainer Brian Cox also had other special matters to attend to at the Wodonga Racecourse on Friday, presenting the winner of the Ollie Cox Memorial Race in honour of her late grandfather.
"I've got a bit of business here you could say, and I like to dress up, so I just decided to do it all together," she said.
