Model, Instagram star and Myer Fashions on the Field ambassador
You’ll find me … Flemington’s newest place to be seen is The Park. It’s got everything my friends and I love – fashion, entertainment, food and racing on the big screens. Top tip for staying fresh and stylish It’s important to stay hydrated and to be comfortable. It’s a long day so choosing the right heel can make all the difference. Block heels are “in” and they’re great for the track.
Nadia wears: Rachel Gilbert lace dress in mauve. In store in October.
Key racewear trend The key trends this season are feminine and floaty, so it’s a great chance to wear a pretty dress and a cute boater-style hat. But it’s all about dressing in something you feel comfortable and confident in.
Favourite race day This year Crown Oaks Day will be a highlight because I’m on the judging panel for the Myer Fashions on the Field national final. I also have a fondness for Emirates Stakes Day. It’s the last day of the carnival so everyone relaxes and has fun. We all want to hold on to the fun of the Melbourne Cup Carnival for as long as possible.
Fashion blogger and BMW Caulfield Cup Carnival style ambassador Favourite race day I just love the Caulfield Cup; it’s one of the first race days of the season. People are relaxed and there to have fun and to embrace the racing and fashion. It’s a great time to catch up with friends.
How do you put your outfit together? I plan my outfits well ahead of time. Special race-day memory Sofitel Girls’ Day Out was pretty special this year. It was my first race day since being Myer Fashions on the Field ambassador.
You’ll find me … I’ll spend a lot of time in the David Jones Fashion Stable because they’ve got Chandon and a roving fashion illustrator, and it’s only five metres from the track.
Stephanie wears: Asilio dress, Lisa Tan hat, Kenzo scarf and Paula Cademartori heels, all available at Myer.
MORE STYLE TIPS ONLINE JENNIFER HAWKINS, JESSICA GOMES & JESINTA CAMPBELL
JASON DUNDAS Television presenter and David Jones ambassador
Favourite race day I love Caulfield Cup. I’ve been hosting the David Jones marquee there for four years.
Top tip for staying fresh and stylish A man in a nice-fitting suit will always look respectable, no matter how long a day he has had.
You’ll find me … As a former racehorse owner, for me it’s about getting trackside and feeling the power of the animals as they race by.
Special race-day memory I loved being able to DJ in the marquee with Jessica Gomes and Jesinta Campbell. At around 4pm most people are relaxing and ready to dance.
How do you put your outfit together? The hardest part for me is deciding what to wear. I generally do a fitting a couple of days before and I like to take along a few ties and pocket squares on the morning of the races so I can choose.
How do you pick a winner? I have been best mates with Tom Waterhouse for over 10 years so I always call him for some last-minute tips. Or I simply choose the name I like – that hasn’t worked yet but it is fun. ●
How do you pick a winner? After getting some expert tips from my uncle and dad, I watch the horses in the mounting yard to see what they look like and then I place a last-minute bet. ●

HOW TO DO THE RACES IN STYLE
I’ll be wearing … This season there’s a big ’70s influence so I’ve looked for sleeve details and ruching. I like outfits that are tailored and not too short or sparkly. I wear my shapewear to hold everything in – especially after having a baby. I like colour – you can have fun with race wear and I love a bit of print, too. Top tip for staying fresh and stylish It’s all about what you keep in your handbag. I carry Party Feet and slip them in my shoes in the afternoon when my feet get sore. I also carry eye drops. How do you put your outfit together? I start looking online and see what is on the runways a few weeks before Caulfield. Special race-day memory Last year I was heavily pregnant and I spent the day at Caulfield in a marquee with my friends. We had a great day and it was exciting because I knew I would soon have a baby. But I did sit down a lot that year. How do you pick a winner? Sometimes I listen to my husband, Jimmy, but once I’m at the track I pick names and numbers that I like. I like the number three and quirky names. It’s probably not the best way to go, but I’ve had a few wins! ● SARAH MARINOS OCTOBER 12, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 9
GAI TIME PETER WIlMOTH MEETS THE QUEEN OF SPRING RACING 10 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ OCTOBER 12, 2016
On the cusp of Melbourne’s Spring Carnival, racing fever has hit Sydney. I’ve flown up to meet Australia’s most recognisable trainer, Gai Waterhouse, at a restaurant where she’s the guest of honour at a Carnival-themed lunch.
ut before I meet Gai I’m standing in the restaurant’s large front garden. Women and a handful of men in racing finery (the women in striking racewear, the men in crisp white shirts and the occasional discreet lower-arm tattoo) are enjoying pre-lunch drinks while two miniature ponies are encouraged by their handlers to jump over poles held just above the ground, an amusing if just faintly wrong sight. Inside it’s glamour central. I sit at a table with Sunrise presenter Samantha Armytage and veteran actor Roy Billing. After doing a Q&A, Gai, 62, bounds out of the restaurant, stopping for photos and chatting with guests, smiling that famous megawatt smile, paying focused attention to everyone she meets, a whirling dervish on a charm offensive, but no one doubts she’s genuinely interested. Now Bart Cummings has left us, there is no better “face” of the Spring Racing Carnival. Gai directs me to her car and her driver Damien waiting outside. She moves at breakneck speed, organising on the fly, things happening around her because she says so. It’s the modus operandi of someone used to guiding people – owners, jockeys, stable staff – and, of course, horses. “You know Batman and Robin?” Gai says as she spills into the back of the BMW to sit next to me. “That’s us!” She’s referring to Damien. Her dog is in the back seat. “He travels everywhere with us.” I’m privileged to join this tight-knit trifecta for a drive across Sydney. Gai reaches for a box and opens it to show me a small amethyst piece in the shape of the Melbourne Cup, a gift from her husband Robbie Waterhouse. “Isn’t it beautiful?” It’s a tender moment. Since we’re talking superheroes, Gai is the Wonder Woman of the track, having trained more than 100 group1 winners, including 2013’s Melbourne Cup champion, Fiorente. “It’s my life,” she says. “It’s something I’ve been born and bred to do. It’s my business, it’s my passion, it’s my husband’s passion, our son’s passion, my daughter is involved in fashion, which can be related to the racing industry. We talk it and think it 24/7.” We’re on the eve of Gai’s favourite time of the year – Melbourne’s racing carnival. “I adore racing in Melbourne,” she says. “I’m lucky the VRC [Victoria Racing Club] allows me to have stables at Flemington. I have 20 boxes and yards there. I think it’s the best track in the world.” She has enjoyed the ultimate victory. “Unbelievable,” she says. “You don’t realise until you spend a lot of time in Melbourne that it literally is the pinnacle of your sporting career, winning the Cup. Everyone thinks it, breathes it and talks it … Everyone talks about having a Cup runner. How do we get it? How do we buy it? How can we be in it? Are you nominating our horse for the Cup? “And then the closer to the Cup, the more the crescendo builds. You can imagine that all your life you’ve done it, been there and watched people, other trainers and my father [trainer Tommy Smith], who won two Cups and he was second and third in many others, and you realise how much it plays on people’s imaginations.” Would not winning a Cup have been a career disappointment? “When you win it you’d say, ‘Yes’,” she says. “Until you’ve won it, you’d say, ‘Oh well, it just didn’t happen’. May I say that the average trainer in Australia and the average visiting trainer never trains a Melbourne Cup winner … You’ve got to have the trifecta. You’ve got to have the right people to buy the horse, you’ve got to have the right horse, and things have got to go your way. It’s the timing, it’s the field we’re up against, it’s the jockey you choose. Did

Michelle Payne pull the right rein going where she was? Well yes, she did, because she won the Cup. Did Damien Oliver when he rode my horse Fiorente? Yes he did, because he was on the right pace at the right time and when they moved up he was able to get that momentum and had a bit of space … it’s really exciting.” She talks about the acute perceptiveness needed to be a good trainer. “I’ve trained my eyes to notice things. I notice people, the way they move, the way they touch their face, their clothes, the way they pull a face, their eyes might move to the side. Tells me things about them. Well, horses are the same. When they come out to the middle, [co-trainer] Adrian Bott and I are standing there and I’ll quite often say, ‘Adrian, that horse has lightened off’, or ‘That horse has got too fat’. That helps us train the horses. “There’s a lot of psychology involved. You’ve got to understand them … Adrian and I are football coaches and our team is four-legged. Plus the jockey. We’ve got the double whammy – we’ve got a human being involved with an animal. We have to make sure we’re keeping the jockey happy and motivated and thinking forward and we must make sure the horse is hunky-dory on the day.” She has fond memories of her father. “Dad was the ace card. They broke the mould. There’ll never be another
“I’ve trained my eyes to notice things. I notice people, the way they move … tells me things about them” dad. I have taken a lot of what dad taught me; I’d be mad if I didn’t. I suppose I’m very patient with horses. He said to me once, when I won with Pharaoh in the Doncaster , ‘I couldn’t have got him to do that. You’re very patient. I wouldn’t have been that patient with him.’ I’m always thinking, how can I get that horse to win a race, to get it to lift to the next grade?” I ask about her earliest memory of loving horses. “I just loved being around my dad. I loved going to the track, it was really fun.”
hen Gai was a girl, Tommy would take her to Centennial Park to look for duck eggs. “Of course they never existed. They were in dad’s pocket. He’d hide them. Until one day I banged up against the side of his pants and he had squashed egg in his pocket.” On Fridays, Tommy would take Gai to the Sydney Markets to meet clients and punters. “I’d go down there and look at all the little ducks and chickens. I’d invariably come home with something mum would reel in horror about.” In that category were a dozen newborn chicks. “We went off to Queensland for the school holidays and dad was in charge of the baby chicks,” Gai says. “He threw a jumper on them to keep them warm and suffocated them all.” Gai was a competent rider who would later do trackwork for her father. Once she had a nasty accident. “We had a property near Hay. The horse took off on me and I came off it and crashed my head to the ground.” Wearing a helmet? Her voice drops. “No one wore helmets in those days.” The fall has affected her hearing.
Racing has always been a family affair. Husband Robbie is a former bookmaker who made headlines for his involvement in the 1984 Fine Cotton horse-swapping scandal. Robbie was sentenced to eight months of weekend detention for perjury and banned from racetracks for his involvement, but all restrictions were removed in 2001. Son Tom Waterhouse was also seldom out of the spotlight as the seemingly omnipresent face of his eponymous betting website, which he sold to gaming giant William Hill in 2013 for $34 million. “He had to be public because you had to try and compete with the other betting firms. He’s a natural betting man. He loves all aspects of betting and gambling … He’s very good at what he does, he’s exceedingly passionate about it. He lives a corporate life.” I ask Gai about her famous 2013 run-in with long-time friend and horse breeder John Singleton, for whom she has trained for many years. Their relationship hit the headlines when the advertising mogul publicly “sacked” Gai (he later changed his mind). Singo claimed Tom Waterhouse had told acquaintances his horse, More Joyous, was not fit enough to win the All Aged Stakes, but hadn’t informed him of this. The next morning he removed all the horses he owned in Gai’s stable, Tulloch Lodge. (Tom Waterhouse was later cleared of any wrongdoing). Gai called it “a lovers’ tiff” and Singo called it “a domestic tiff across 23 front pages”. “People can do silly things,” Gai says. “John today is probably very different from John of three years ago. In the heat of the moment he said things he has very many times apologised for. I’m a great believer in ‘life moves on’.” Friends still? “Oh yes, very much so. I train for him. He’s a great breeder. He’s always someone who if you rang and said, ‘Look, I need help with such and such’, he’d help you.” In her early 20s Gai moved to London to model and act in theatre and television. She modelled a clothing range for a London firm and “took the range to Copenhagen for them”. She appeared in the British TV series Dr Who with long-time lead Tom Baker, worked with acting stalwart Trevor Howard “in a very boring play”, and with Patrick Cargill, known in Australia for TV’s Father, Dear Father Father. “I think it was one of the best things that ever happened to me,” she says of acting. “It gave me enormous self-confidence I wouldn’t have had if I hadn’t gone and lived overseas to go and catch and kill, get the parts. It helped me project myself.” Acting came from her mother’s side. “My mother loved singing and she auditioned for the opera in Australia and ran second to Dame Joan Sutherland. Dad was at the eisteddfod and said, ‘Darling, I don’t think you’ll be winning that one. You’ve just come up against a group1 performer’.” On her return to Australia, Gai decided horses were her greatest passion. She began clocking the horses for her father and in 1994 took over training at his stables. It’s nearly time for Damien to drop me off. It strikes me that Gai has employed skills learnt from the world of acting – notably perceptiveness and not taking loss personally – to great advantage in racing. I put to her a quote from her husband Robbie that Gai is the most observant person he’s ever met. “Well you’ve got to be,” she says. “See, I’m dealing with animals, dealing with creatures of flight, and you’ve got to be very quick to see the change in them.” A pause. And maybe a nod to her rivals and the industry she loves. “But there are lots of observant people in racing.” ● firstname.lastname@example.org » gaiwaterhouse.com.au

A PIECE OF THE ACTION THERE’S NOTHING LIKE OWNING A SHARE IN A RACEHORSE
wise person once said: “He who said he made a small fortune in the horse business probably started out with a large fortune.” We’ve all heard about the Tennant Creek teacher, Wendy Green, who paid $7500 for a half share in Rogan Josh, who went on to earn $2.68 million in prize money. And the group of blokes who each invested $5000 in an outside chance called Prince of Penzance, who stunned the world by winning the 2016 Melbourne Cup. But for most, investing in a racehorse is a triumph of optimism over common sense. It costs hundreds of thousands to buy a horse that might qualify for the Cup, not to mention the $50,000 a year for training. Some owners spend millions, with minimal return. Yet the romance of owning a racehorse can get under the skin of the most unlikely people, from business tycoons to football stars and actors. We asked some well-known owners why they do it. ● PETER WILMOTH
Retired AFL L footballer For retired Collingwood footballer and Brownlow medallist Dane Swan, owning horses with friends has been an enjoyable distraction from the pressures of 15 years in the AFL. “Getting together with your mates is a good way to keep your mind off the stresses of footy,” he says. Dane, who has just released a post-retirement autobiography, has an interest in three horses with nine friends, mostly from outside football – although former Collingwood teammate Dale Thomas, now at Carlton, is also involved. “There are no world-beaters at the moment,” Dane says. “We have a baby by So You Think, a two-year-old. Hopefully it starts to run in the next few months.” Dane and some co-owners watched their horse run in Camperdown a couple of years ago. “We took the bus down, 10 of us who are involved in it, and it won. It wasn’t a group1 race but it was great fun to be there.” For Dane, it’s not about making money. “It’s more a social thing. It’s about going to the pub with the boys or going to the races with your mates, having a

few bets, having a beer, putting a quaddie on; have a bit of fun together, watch your horse, whether it runs in the Melbourne Cup or the Camperdown Cup. “Sitting with your mates and watching a horse go round is pretty exciting. It would be nice to make a career out of it but I’m certainly not worried about trying to make a million dollars out of it.” Still, there’s always hope. “That’s always in the back of your head, that you could have a 100-1 horse. There are a thousand stories about blokes paying $10,000 for a horse and it wins a group1 race … but I’m not holding my breath.” Dane does not have an equestrian background – “I rode horses on school camps but they were a bit too big and scary for me” – and is aware of not spending too much. “I’m not putting my life savings into horses because I know how hard the game is. I put in what I’m willing to lose. I haven’t wasted a lot of money on horses, which people can quite easily do.” ● » Dane Swan: M My Story (Hardie Grant Books) $45 CONTINUED NEXT PAGE

Better to have owned and won (a little) than never to have owned at all. That’s pretty much Kate Langbroek’s attitude to her brief foray into the world of owning a share of a horse. For a time, Kate was part of a syndicate with two close friends, tennis player Alicia Molik and Simone Callahan (former wife of Shane Warne), and a couple of colleagues at radio station Nova. “We bought a horse because we thought it would be fun,” Kate says. “A mutual
Daniel MacPherson fell for racing as a young boy. “I was introduced to racing by my grandmother,” he says. “I won $5 on Kiwi in the Melbourne Cup while grandma was babysitting me.” Since January last year, Daniel, who was host of Dancing with the Stars and made his name internationally on the British police drama The Bill, has been involved in a syndicate that bought a filly now named Sebeauty. Selected by trainer Lee Freedman, Sebeauty, now a three-year-old, ran a close fourth at Cranbourne after winning her trial at Flemington, an exciting moment for the group. “Initially, it was myself and two like-minded buddies; we were all keen racing fans and had been chatting about ownership together for a year or two,” Daniel says. Two years ago, he spent Oaks Day with Lee in the James Boag marquee at Flemington. “The idea was cemented over a couple of the sponsor’s products,” he says. “We recruited a few more like-minded enthusiasts, and we now total nine. We are spread between
Melbourne, Sydney, Los Angeles and New York City. It’s a lot of fun …’’ Daniel loves being part of the racing community. “There’s nothing quite like it, especially coming up to springtime. I love riding the emotion of the journey, and watching our filly develop into a nice young racehorse. I’m like a proud parent. “She is only one race into her first three-year-old prep. But she’s learnt a lot since having a couple of starts as a young tyro. She’s much more mature mentally, and physically, and we are all very excited about her future. “I love riding, and I love being around horses. They are special animals, and they attract a certain type of person.” ●

friend said, ‘OK, I’ll sort you girls out’. And we were, ‘Don’t you hook us up with some rotten old thing waiting to walk into a can of Pal’. We ended up with a really good little horse called Ntini, named after a South African cricketer. It didn’t cost us much; we shared a share of a share.” Kate has joked that the friends invested in a racehorse because it takes too long to lose money on the stockmarket and it’s not as much fun. Ntini had his first race in the country, she says, and won. Ntini needed some pricey attention. “He had some sort of breakdown and had some Frenchman walking around whispering in his ear, which we all discovered was very expensive,” Kate says. “The opportunity came up for him to go to Singapore, where he went and won lots of races … he’s now agisted on a farm. It was a one-off. It was just a mad bunch of girls going, ‘Wouldn’t that be fun?’” ●

MEET THE UNSUNG HEROINE OF LAST YEAR’S CUP WIN
t was one of the all-time great moments in Australian sport. Here was Michelle Payne, the first woman to win a Melbourne Cup, and she’d done it riding a 100-1 chance, Prince of Penzance. By her side was her brother Stevie, born with Down syndrome, sharing the glory as the strapper. Their mother had died in a car accident when Michelle was an infant and the jockey herself had cheated death, surviving a fractured skull while riding as an apprentice. Now they were making history together. Fairytales seldom come better than this. But like so many fairy stories, there was more to it than met the eye. Standing a few metres from the cameras was Prince of Penzance’s “other strapper”, a young woman whose bond with the horse was this tale’s secret ingredient. Typically, Maddie Raymond was more than happy to let others take the limelight. Rewind to first light a couple of mornings before Cup Day 2015, and arguably the most critical player in the tale of the 100-1 shot beating the world’s best was savouring the moment. Having ridden the gelding with the stable name of Success almost every day, tacking him up and leading him around the mounting yard, she had never felt a horse so fit and ready to go. “I’m not a crier but I knew it was my last ride on him before the Cup,” Maddie says. “I always go off on my own with him. He just settles on his own, just me and him. I cantered up the beach, first light coming

through the pitch black, and I was nearly crying. I was just so excited.” Maddie and stable foreman Jarrod McLean oversee trainer Darren Weir’s Warrnambool operation, where beach work is preferred to track training. Thirty staff fuss over 80 thoroughbreds from 3.30 each morning. On race days, heads don’t hit pillows until after 10pm. It’s a labour of love, one Maddie would happily undertake even if the horse in box 81 was the only animal in the yard. Another stable hand looked after Penzance when he first arrived. Maddie remembers an immature horse who was “a real handful, full of himself … really keen on the bit, jumping about the whole time, spooking at things”. But after a six-month stint working in Ireland, Maddie came home last February to a different horse. “He came back into work and I started riding him pretty much every day, just clicked with him. He started settling really well and I fell for him head over heels.” Here was the bond she yearned for when she asked her parents for a pony, only to be given budgies on her 13th birthday. “The budgies were never a go,” she says with a

laugh. The next year they caved. Maddie still has Sky – 13 now and in foal for a second time – at the farm she rents from her folks. At 23, she organises trucks, riders, staff and the running of one of racing’s most successful operations. Her devotion to Success, then and now, prompts ribbing from her mates, who see her rare days off invariably broken by visits to check anything from his feed to his feet. On the big day she drove the float to Flemington with four girlfriends and backed her horse each way, even though she doesn’t bet. Time rushed by and suddenly Darren Weir was telling her to put on the strapper’s
bib and saddle him up. “All the girls said to me, ‘Put the bib on, grab the bib!’ But I couldn’t, it didn’t feel right. I gave it to Stevie. He was a bit funny about it but I said, ‘No, it’s the right thing.’ I was there with the horse anyway, I knew what work I’d done. “Stevie had picked barrier one at the draw, he was the lucky charm.” Maddie found a spot in the mounting yard and, when the field thundered past, Prince of Penzance had his ears back and was flying. “Everyone’s screaming and yelling and jumping around and cheering him home, and I just stood there. I froze. I didn’t jump, I didn’t scream, I didn’t make a sound. I just stood there and trembled.” When people tell her she gave up the limelight, she laughs. “If Stevie wasn’t part of it, people wouldn’t know who I was. But they say, ‘There’s that lovely girl who let Stevie do it!’” She’s honoured to be a woman who played her part in a landmark moment, and she still shakes her head in awe at Michelle’s post-race comments about sexism. “How she handled it, how she came in from that race and said what she said, so relaxed, I will never understand. I couldn’t even talk.” When Maddie rides Success now, she feels that winning has made him more of a pro. She rates him stronger than last year. “I’d love to be there again. Whether he runs 10 lengths last, or even if he doesn’t get there, it doesn’t matter. Because he doesn’t owe anyone anything.” ● PETER HANLON

attend the races at least 10 times each year and have entered Fashions on the Field 82 times. I spend up to $20,000 on my outfits for the races each year. I love to see the beautiful fashion and cheer people on as they walk on the FOTF stage. I have taken out the best-dressed lady eight times and I took first place at Caulfield’s Blue Diamond Stakes Day in 2015. I also won the Longines award for elegance on Derby Day at Flemington in 2014. I mostly shop for my outfits online at Net-a-Porter, Matchesfashion, Luisa Via Roma, Mytheresa and Farfetch. Alexander McQueen is one of my favourite international designers, while my favourite local designers are Toni Maticevski and Craig Braybrook. I also love Saint Laurent, Valentino and Chanel. I rarely shop in department stores. When I saw Alexander McQueen had released a range with a bumblebee theme, I knew I would have to invest in a piece. I am a primary school teacher and the children in my class call me “Miss B”. My maiden name begins with the letter B and my students, other teachers and friends started buying me lots of paraphernalia with bees to decorate my classroom. This outfit says a lot about me – I love the delicate embroidered detail of bumblebees in this Alexander McQueen dress. I also have a tiny bee tattooed on my hip. I coveted this dress for months then snapped it up when it came on sale online. It feels like it was made for me. It fits like a glove and the style is classic. Milliner Jill Humphries made my hat and it complemented the dress perfectly. She has
been making my hats since 2012. I wore this dress, millinery and jewellery on Oaks Day at Flemington in 2013 and was happy to make the top 10 in Fashions on the Field. I wore a different pair of shoes and chose a Charlotte Olympia clutch on that occasion. ●
“i spend up to $20,000 on my outfits for the races each year” – emma scodellaro
’ve never entered Fashions on the Field but I try to attend the Spring Racing Carnival every couple of years. It’s a great excuse to get dressed up. I can spend anything from $100 to $1000 on an outfit – I usually blow my budget on shoes. This year we are going to [Emirates] Stakes Day and I decided to make my own outfit. I made this dress from linen – it’s so fresh and easy to wear and the floral print is cheerful. It reflects my feelings about coming into spring and planning a great family day out. I will definitely wear it again – we have a wedding this summer and it’ll be perfect. I bought this vintage 1954 natural straw hat from Chapel Street Bazaar in 2004. I kept the style minimal by adding a couple of feathers and band to tie in with my dress fabric. For my outfit, I wanted to create something elegant in a silhouette that would complement my vintage hat. I simplified the classic 1950s full-circle silhouette and exaggerated the curves of the front and back neckline to give it a sleek modern edge. Adding the right accessories is a great way to bring on-trend style to an outfit. I purchased my rose suede Diavolina Anthea shoes from Zomp for $190 and the belt was on sale at Witchery for $19.95. My Oroton travel wallet was a gift for my 25th birthday. I often use it as a clutch. I love exploring Hawksburn Village for its great range of boutiques, St Collins Lane feels so indulgent and Flinders Lane never gets tired. I’ve been a fan of French label Sandro since I discovered it in Paris six years ago and also like Ginger & Smart. I also love getting lost in Chapel Street Bazaar, and there are some fantastic vintage shops in Surry Hills, Sydney. My best second-hand purchase was a black straw hat in mint condition and Italian-made 1960s platform shoes with clear resin heels. I once made a dress from $2-a-metre curtain fabric and was complimented by the fashion editor of a well-known magazine. It’s all about the fit. ● JANE ROCCA OCTOBER 12, 2016 \ THE WEEKLY REVIEW 25

Women with heart-shaped faces should try slanting their hat to one side to slim the face and draw attention to the eyes, while oblong faces should avoid tall pieces advises Brett Morley. “Think clean, sharp lines instead,” he says. “A full brim will look great and will bring balance to your shoulder line too.” Sarah Clancy says hats with plenty of height work wonders for round and elongated faces. She says those with an oval face can opt for almost any type of millinery, while floppy hats work for rounder shapes and wider brims suit women with a square jawline. ●

back this year and work wonderfully with lace dresses, shift styles and ’50s old-world glamour. They also look grand. If you have a bright dress, don’t approach millinery with the same intent; accentuate rather than exaggerate your look. Ann says the key is balance and proportion. “We can break and bend rules to create new looks. An example is the cult boater – it goes with anything, from sharp suits to floating dresses,” she says. Danica wants you to think about structured style – a fedora with a pantsuit, crowns with full skirts or a fit-and-flare style dress. “Your outfit should not have to compete with your headwear,” she says. “Try picking out the least dominant colour in your outfit, then exaggerate that colour up top. Never look for an exact match, as you will look too contrived.” Christine says the key is balancing the propotions of your outfit with the shape of your hat. “If you have a long skirt with volume and a slim fitted top, then you can proportion it with a grand Cecil Beaton-style hat.” ● JANE ROCCA

HOW TO FIND A SUIT TO SUIT ON ANY BUDGET
an you move your body left,” Michael says from behind his camera. I awkwardly sway to the left. “No, like this, like this.” Michael has about 50 years of photography experience, a stark contrast to my 50-second modelling track record. But that’s not why we’re at Chadstone – the fashion capital. We’re here to find out how to put together a head-turning spring racing outfit – no matter what the budget. Chadstone personal stylist Anika Walker is preparing for a swell of new visitors when the centre reveals the most significant phase of its $660-million expansion on October 13, including more than 60 new shops, but she’s taken time out to help me with my mission. First up, we head high-end with a luxe look, courtesy of MJ Bale. Anika lays out a blue double-breasted suit. The price tag says $1295 and I can feel the quality. She pairs it with a tie and shirt. I’ve seen double-breasted suits popping up in the fashion pages, so I know we’re on the money here – literally and figuratively. “For the guy that wants to be at the forefront of fashion and be really on trend, double-breasted suits are the way to go,” Anika says. “The wow factor here is the fact that it is double-breasted so I’ve pulled everything else back, letting the tones just complement each other without taking focus.” The suit may be the hero but the Aquila loafers certainly play Robin to their Batman. I don’t mind saying it’s the first time I’ve worn $539 shoes. “Looks good, Tim, looks really nice,” Michael says. I immediately suspect his motives but I feel I’m in good hands with Anika – the styling service is the ideal spring-racing preparation for those seeking an on-point look or those who just don’t want to hit the shops in search of it. But back to the shoes. Anika says it’s the one area of a bloke’s spring racing wardrobe you can’t afford to skimp on. “A leather shoe is important. If you do wear a man-made material, your feet can get sweaty and uncomfortable. So regardless of how much money you have to spend on your suit, always invest in comfortable shoes.” For the ‘less’ outfit, Anika takes me to something at the other end of the price spectrum, Zara. It’s just one of many popular names

Chadstone boasts, including luxury designers such as Valentino, Celine and Loewe, premium international stores including The Kooples, Reiss and Michael Kors, and flagship stores such as Sephora, H&M and Uniqlo. I slide into my Zara outfit. Zara sunglasses, a Peter Jackson feather pin and Peter Jackson shoes round out the look. It’s a “modern feel, embracing a really light tone”, Anika tells me. “I think as soon as we come out of winter, it’s nice to get rid of the dark colours. “I’ve picked up on that tone with a bit of chocolate there [in the tie] and again just tying it back with a nice tan shoe.”
Again, Michael tells me I look good and at this point I’m starting to believe him. But it leaves us with the million-dollar question: can you really get the right look on any budget? I’ll let Anika have the last word. After all, she’s the professional with more than five years of experience in helping Chadstone shoppers find the right look to suit their body and budget. “As long as you’ve got the fit right, no one really needs to know how much you’ve paid for it. “Accessorising will take it a long way too. “Oh, and don’t skimp on the shoes.” ● TIM DOUTRE

the long way back OUR GREATEST LIVING MELBOURNE CUP TRAINER HAS UNFINISHED BUSINESS
(MICHAEL DODGE \ GETTY IMAGES)
f all of Australia’s 3800 thoroughbred trainers, only Lee Freedman lives in air that the legendary Bart Cummings has breathed. When Bart died, aged 87, in August 2015, he had a record 12 Melbourne Cups on his mantel. Lee Freedman and Archer’s trainer Etienne de Mestre are next-best with five. Lee now sits as the greatest living Melbourne Cup-winning trainer, and by a long way. Only one other living trainer has won multiple Cups – the Irish wizard, Dermot Weld, who changed the face of the race when he won with Vintage Crop in 1993 and again in 2002 with Media Puzzle. Lee Freedman trained his first Melbourne Cup winner in 1989 when Tawrrific beat his stablemate Super Impose. It was a Cummings-esque feat in that Bart also trained first and second when he won his first Cup in 1965, when the mighty mare Light Fingers nosed out Ziema. Lee won it again with Subzero in 1992 and Doriemus in 1995 before a double with Makybe Diva in 2004 and 2005. Lee has often been compared to Bart Cummings. In fact, it seemed to niggle Bart that Lee was happy to claim that he’d studied the master trainer at Flemington and tried to copy his technique with stayers, especially how he trained his horses in the 10 days leading into the Melbourne Cup.

30 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ OCTOBER 12, 2016
“They say Lee copied me. That makes him a good judge,” Bart once told reporters with a wry smile, in what is as close as he got to a pat on the back for a rival. On August 12 this year, Lee celebrated his 60th birthday. He took time to reflect on a career that started at age 26 when he trained Blockade to win at the Gold Coast in 1983. When asked how he sees himself at 60, especially after a tumultuous past five years, during which he retired from training in 2011 – burnt out, disillusioned and suffering depression – he answered: “Older, greyer, wiser, but my ability to train is just the same.” When he quit, he handed over the business to his brother Anthony, who welcomed Lee back in November 2014 as a training partner. “I spent the best part of three years reorganising my life. I missed the horses, the people and the mornings and have unfinished business in the industry,” he says. Much has been written about Lee’s battle with depression, however, interestingly, he regards quitting as one of the three best moments of his life as a trainer. “Quitting lifted a huge weight off my shoulders, and I was able to step away and regroup.” His other two best moments are more obvious – first, training Makybe Diva to win her third Melbourne Cup in 2005; and second, winning at Royal Ascot in England with his speedy mare Miss Andretti.
While these days Lee is a more relaxed and less driven version of the one that dominated racing in the 1990s, his record stands alongside the best. He has 126 group1 winners, including five Melbourne Cups, four Caulfield Cups, two Cox Plates and four Golden Slippers. At 40, and riding a seemingly unstoppable juggernaut, his record was such that we hadn’t seen a trainer like him before. Even Bart Cummings’ and the great Tommy Smith’s training record at the same age paled into insignificance by comparison.
died in 1998, aged 81) with an incredible 282 group1 winners, which was a world record until recently topped by Ireland’s Aidan O’Brien. Bart trained 266 group1 winners. Lee says he’d like to think he has the energy, drive and experience to peg back a few Melbourne Cups on Bart’s record. “I’d like to think I can train more Melbourne Cup winners, but I don’t expect to be getting near Bart’s record. I don’t want to win [trainer’s] premierships any more, it’s more about training big-race winners and doing my best for our clients.
“It’s good to be on edge & anxious … & it’s good to win” When Lee was 40 in the early spring of 1996, he’d trained 72 group1 winners – three Melbourne Cups, three Caulfield Cups, one Cox Plate and four Golden Slippers. Bart Cummings, who turned 40 in November 1976, had trained 25 group1 winners – three Melbourne Cups, one Caulfield Cup, one Golden Slipper and no Cox Plates. Tommy Smith, who was 40 in September 1956, was a late bloomer and, like Bart, had most of his success between the ages of 40 and 60. He had trained only 16 group1 winners and won one Melbourne Cup. Tommy retired from training in 1994 (he
“The Melbourne Cup has changed a lot with international participation in the past 20 or so years and, although we no longer follow the same mantra that Bart Cummings perfected, there is still the same importance, and art, to getting the horse to its peak on Melbourne Cup day.” This year, Lee has two former European stayers under his tutelage with Melbourne Cup aspirations. “The big German”, Our Ivanhowe, was unlucky when 10th behind Prince Of Penzance in last year’s Cup, while the newcomer, Exosphere (which will race in Australia under the name of Exospheric
to avoid confusion with another horse of the same name), is a mystery. At the time of writing, Exosphere was in training in quarantine in England in preparation for a spring campaign in Melbourne after a group of Lee’s long-time clients bought the stallion in August. Previously owned by Khalid Abdullah, a member of the House of Saud, and trained by Sir Michael Stoute, the stallion won the group2 Jockey Club Stakes (2400m) at Newmarket in April. “Maybe I can do something that Bart couldn’t do … win a Melbourne Cup with an European horse straight out of quarantine. I nearly did it in 2011 with Lucas Cranach [third behind Dunaden] and this horse looks to have a similar profile,” he says. Lee admits that, despite 34 years as a trainer and his vast experience training big-race winners, the Melbourne Spring Carnival still makes him edgy and, despite his newly found general sense of calm, he still nips like the stable dog when provoked. It’s racing’s time, when Australia’s focus, and that of the world, is on it. For some, bank coffers are filled and reputations are made. For others, it can be worse than a kick from a raucous colt. Lee Freedman knows that all too well. “It’s good to be on edge and anxious; it’s our grand final and it’s good to win.” ● DANNY POWER

et’s Elope could often be seen wiling away the hours lying under her favourite river red gum at Lauriston Park, Creightons Creek, near Euroa. For the matriarch, winner of the 1991 Melbourne Cup, the giant tree gave her protection from the wind and shade from the sun. She lay down under her tree for the last time on September 12. She was 29, which is a grand age for any horse, let alone a racetrack warrior and long-time brood mare. In the tradition of warrior horses, she was buried standing, facing the rising sun. As a brood mare she did her job, producing the 2014 Adelaide Cup winner Outback Joe, but in her latter years she was a nanny to the young fillies being raised by Chris and Kathy Bakker at Lauriston Park. She died less than 24 hours after the race named in her honour – the Let’s Elope Stakes – was run at Flemington and won by the mare Don’t Doubt Mamma. Let’s Elope was trained by the legendary Bart Cummings, who died in August 2015. Bart rated the mare right up with the best he trained, although his first Melbourne Cup winner, Light Fingers, was always his favourite mare. Before her death, Let’s Elope was the oldest living Melbourne Cup winner. She has passed that “torch” to one of racing’s wonderful equine characters, Subzero, now 28, who won the Cup in 1992 and is still active as an ambassador to the racing industry.

Subzero, more white than grey, lives the life of Riley at owner Graham Salisbury’s Heathcote farm. Graham “bought” Subzero in June 1994 after the gelding was retired by his group of owners and trainer Lee Freedman. He paid a token $1 for the horse and retrained the handsome grey to become an outstanding Clerk of the Course pony at Melbourne’s racetracks. Such was the gentle nature and intelligence of Subzero, he quickly became a favourite of the public and it wasn’t long before his new owner had the old horse doing tricks. He was so popular, Dubai’s
ruler, horse-loving Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum, flew the horse and Graham to the World Cup race meeting at Nad Al Sheba in Dubai in 2000. It’s Subzero’s ability to interact with children, particularly the ill or handicapped, that amazes Graham. “It’s like he’s got an instinct to be extra gentle,” he says. There are 16 living Melbourne Cup winners; the past two, last year’s winner Prince of Penzance and the German stayer Protectionist, are still racing. The five winners from 2009 to 2013 are stallions at stud, which is something of a recent phenomenon, as the quality of the race improves due to the influx of international horses. You have to go back to the 1920s to find a similar period when Cup winners were sought-after as stallions. Most winners since, apart from the odd exception, have been geldings and mares. Gai Waterhouse’s Irish-bred Fiorente – the 2013 winner – is standing at Sun Stud, Kerrie, near Romsey, in Victoria, where he is commanding a lot of attention from brood mare owners. The Living Legends, a home for champion racehorses at Oaklands Junction near Sunbury, cares for four Melbourne Cup winners: the geldings Might And Power Power, Rogan Josh, Brew and Efficient, who are on display for those who want to pay tribute. ● DANNY POWER

it costs to bring an international face to Caulfield or Flemington, although Judy says budgets have a limit. In any case, it’s considered money well spent for the big businesses hosting the marquees. A big name gracing your tent will not only guarantee press coverage, they will create a memorable experience for VIP guests. “Many marquees have very important customers and we want people who, if those customers approach them, will be happy to have a photo and to chat. We wouldn’t invite people who overrate themselves,” she says. “Harry Kewell was at one of the marquees one year and a group of well-dressed investment bankers asked if they could have a photo with him. He spoke to them for an hour-and-a half and, when they left, they’d had the best day.”

celebrities add a touch of star power to the races
n the weeks leading up to the Spring Racing Carnival, Judy Romano agonises over her final celebrity guest lists. The publicity supremo, director of Romano Beck, is charged with managing the guest list for coveted marquees at Flemington and has already devoted months of careful negotiations to securing an international star as special guest. But one of the hardest tasks, she says, is gently rebuffing the requests for invitations from home-grown celebrities who haven’t quite made the cut this year. “It gets embarrassing – but I suppose it’s great that the carnival event creates such desperation,” says Judy, who has organised marquees at the Birdcage for 25 years, with clients including Moet & Chandon, Saab, Chadstone, Westpac, Lavazza and Emirates. Each of them is a drawcard for international and local celebrities. “Most international celebrities come from the US but big-name actors won’t commit to anything too far out because if a film role comes up, they will take that,” Judy says. “When you tell Americans they have to wear a hat to the races, they don’t understand why because when you go to the races in the US you drink from plastic cups. It’s nowhere near as fancy.” There are a few criteria when choosing a star, she explains. They have to be instantly recognisable, must have a good reputation and should be genuinely interested in being part of the races. Nobody will reveal exactly how much

But very quickly word got out that Molly was in the marquee and people were coming from all over to see him.” So who is on the wishlist for the race-day celebrity wranglers? “I would love to host Claire Danes because she’s a great actor but the ultimate would be the Beckhams with their children,” Judy says.

As soon as one Spring Racing Carnival ends, Myer’s national PR manager Melissa Templeton begins scanning newspapers, magazines, social media and TV to look at potential invitees for the following year. “We keep up to date with who is hot, who the media is loving and who may have dropped off the radar,” she says. “We also stay in touch with movie publicists to find out what international stars may be filming in Australia during the races. If they have been locked away for months doing a movie, they often like the escape of coming to a race day. “Myer is intrinsically linked with the carnival through its fashion, and our marquee is about style and glamour, so we need guests to reflect that, too.” Some of the most memorable stars to attend the races include Spanish singer and pin-up Enrique Iglesias, who caused a stir when he broke the dress code and arrived wearing jeans and a baseball cap. But Judy Romano says it’s Molly Meldrum who creates the biggest buzz in the Birdcage. “Molly blows me away. It takes half an hour to get from a car to the marquee with him because he is ambushed by everyone! “He always stops and smiles for the camera but one year I was exhausted and said I just couldn’t handle the stops and starts.

THE CONSERVATORY \ CROWN
Stakes Day There’s excitement for the whole family (also the day children overrun The Nursery in suits and school shoes), so this is your cue to break out of bacon and eggs and hit the breakfast buffet. Melbourne’s best are city-side but, if you’re prepared to travel, you’ll be rewarded handsomely. The Conservatory at Crown is home to a chocolate-fountain equivalent of Niagara Falls, with the Mount Rushmore of bagels just a hop, skip and a jump away. Continuing the theme, Melba’s buffet at The Langham is famous for its “international cuisine”, with waffles and Bircher muesli nestled near the dim sum and congee. After all, spring racing for kids should be all about exploring culture and tradition in fun and accessible ways, so why not start at breakfast! ●
This year’s Caulfield Cup catch-cry is “just not racing”, so let’s go with the theme and kick things off at places that offer champagne with your champignons at any time of year. If you’re inbound from bayside, stop in at broody Ripponlea Food & Wine for panko-crumbed bubble & squeak croquettes that won’t ruin your lipstick, washed down with a marmalade-spliced breakfast martini. East-side travellers should go al fresco on Giorgios’ terrace – great for oversized hat-wearers (watch out for umbrellas and awnings). Chinese-style soft scrambled eggs with tiger prawns and sesame dressing will go swimmingly with your bottle of Billecart Salmon. Those invading from North of the Wall should stop in at Sth Central Social & Dining, right next to South Yarra Station, for a spot of tea … smoked tea cocktail, that is.
MELBA’S BUFFET \ THE LANGHAM
The Race That Stops The Nation deserves for you and your significants to first stop in somewhere fancy for fluffy caviar blinis and flaky croissants. Take a seat on Entrecote’s South Yarra terrace for some people-watching with bubbly in hand. While you’re at it, shuck in some fresh oysters – it’s never too early. This is also the perfect chance to visit the spanking new Garden State Hotel, which has taken the bar scene by storm with nightly queues since opening a few months ago. They’re dishing up tricked-up toasties and champagne – no reservations required.

Derby Day Ah, Derby, the Frank Sinatra of race days; where people party like it’s 1958, luck is a lady and everything’s in black and white. This is your chance to splash out on something out of the ordinary and quintessentially Melbourne, like tickets to The Black & White Breakfast on the Eureka Skydeck. Sipping chardy 89 storeys above the ground will be sure to make your fortunes feel sky-high, and then it’s time to be whisked away in a limo to Flemington. Or, if you’d prefer a quinella straight out of the gates, why not take your boozy breakfast to the high seas (sort of) with a Melbourne River Cruises meander down the Yarra direct to the track for the first race, complete with morning pastries, a gourmet stand-up buffet for lunch back on the cruiser (bonus!) and (my favourite part) a guaranteed speedy getaway with on-board entertainment all the way back into the city. » eventbrite.com.au » melbcruises.com.au

START THE DAY IN STYLE WITH BUBBLES FOR BREAKFAST
he adage that breakfast is our most important meal of the day is truer still when the subsequent six to 12 hours are fuelled by bubbles and miniature menus. It’s also a time to get the gang together and gather your thoughts before making the trek to the racecourse. Seasoned campaigners will no doubt appreciate the importance of a savoury, protein-rich offering that will last you through the day until the heels come off (back at home, obviously). If you’re a sweet tooth, try to get some fruit in there somewhere, even if it’s choosing the blueberry muffin over a chocolate one – though it’s going to be a long day, so just put one each way and be done with it. No matter which race you choose to place your bets on, here’s a handy guide for where to start the day with a win. ● ALICE ZASLAVSKY A AVSKY
Ladies’ Day or Blokes’ Day, depending on who you ask, is my favourite. It’s more laid-back than Derby, more sophisticated than Stakes, and definitely the day for celebrating femininity in all its forms. For breakfast, this traditionally means finding somewhere glittery or floral (or a whisky bar and some fried chicken, amiright ladies?). Champagne Dame Kyla Kirkpatrick is hosting a champagne breakfast at penthouse bar Mon Bijou. The jewel in their crown? A pamper lounge.

His pop-up eatery will serve four of its famous burgers, chips, chicken tenders and onion rings. “We want people to experience our food exactly the way they would if they came to our stores.” Meanwhile Biggie Smalls’ Shane Delia has put out a challenge, saying his kebabs “taste better than the best burger you’ve ever eaten”. “We are going to give people the flavours they want at one of the best events in the country,” he says. There’ll be plenty of Instagram moments, too, as patrons check out Doughnut Time’s 1950s caravan, join the singing, dancing bearded crew from Sydney’s Knafeh Bakery, or try champagne soft-serve at the retro Messina Mobile. At about half the size of the MCG, The Park will sport a custom-built stage for live bands and four bar areas. Anyone who takes a ride on the Ferris wheel will be treated to stunning views of the track and the nearby Maribyrnong River. Numbers in The Park will be capped at 3000 at any given time, but up to 10,000 guests are expected to enjoy it during each day. ● LEANNE TOLRA
BEYOND THE MARQUEES AT FLEMINGTON
hampagne, canopies, celebrities and head-turning fashions: an invitation to a marquee inside Flemington’s Birdcage has long been one of the hottest tickets in town. But while A-listers are feted and enticed to grace the VIP enclosuress, and less fabulous somebodies scheme and beg to get in, the rest of us have been left out in the cold. Until now. This year, the Victoria Racing Club is introducing an open-access fashion, food and fun precinct, The Park, to give general-admission racegoers a “marquee-like” experience. Covering 10,000 square metres of hallowed ground behind the Flemington grandstands, the free-admission fashion and entertainment area will feature food from some of Melbourne’s best-loved eateries as well as Myer Fashions on the Field, the L’Oreal Paris Powder Room, public marquees, al fresco drinking and dining areas, a DJ playing throughout the day, bands, a vintage carousel and Ferris wheel. Victoria Racing Club has its eye sharply on the 18-35 age group – the crowd one day destined for its premium ticketed events perhaps – and has included top sponsors such as James Boag Premium, Tabcorp, Yellowglen and Lavazza in the Park’s offerings. The VRC says the racing carnival attracts more than 315,000 racegoers to Flemington each year and injects more than $400 million into the Victorian economy. Last year it attracted nearly 64,000 visitors to the state, a 9.3 per cent rise on 2014. But VRC executive general manager of

CAULFIELD UPS THE ANTE ON FOOD & FASHION
40 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ OCTOBER 12, 2016
FOOD The star of Caulfield’s new food line-up is the Estelle by Scott Pickett marquee, hosting 450 guests on the Heath enclosure with a $575 per head premium four-course menu for the Caulfield Cup. Guests will be treated to Saskia Beer chicken with foie gras and black truffle, John Dory with macadamia and pickled shallot, and Flinders Island lamb with zucchini flowers and spring peas. Scott has also created The Caulfield Dessert, a signature dish featuring macerated strawberries, lemon verbena meringue and pastry cream. He says the marquee’s design has been inspired by the colours and textures inside his fine dining restaurant ESP, in Northcote. (SUPPLIED)
t’s not officially the first group 1 race of the Spring Racing Carnival (that honour goes to the Memsie Stakes) but for the food, fun and fashion-conscious racegoer, the BMW Caulfield Cup (October 15 this year) is when the party really gets started. This year it promises to be bigger, better and more fun then ever, thanks to a host of new fine-food choices from Melbourne’s top restaurateurs, a great music line-up and a swish new $500,000 fashion precinct, The David Jones Fashion Stable – not to mention some of the best group 1 races of the season. ●

“It will be dark, moody and sexy, with water and stone features,” he says. Caulfield has boosted its food offerings with the arrival of The European’s Ian Curley as executive chef at its Black Caviar restaurant in 2013, and last year adding hotel professional Julian Robertshaw as executive chef of Promenade, also in the grandstand. Julian has sourced winning ingredients, including premium Glacier 51 toothfish and Fraser island spanner crab for the Caulfield Cup menu. “The toothfish will be served with red miso, oyster mushrooms, braised daikon and lobster,” he says. The fine food extends beyond the VIP areas this season, thanks to an array of top restaurants catering in pop-up form to general admission punters across the track. “We believe that everyone deserves a premium experience when they come to
Caulfield,” says the Melbourne Racing Club’s chief commercial officer, Peta Webster. “We are trying to open up the idea of racing to a wider audience. You shouldn’t have to choose between watching the races and enjoying great food, entertainment or fashion. So we have brought all of these elements together, trackside.” The line-up includes Mistress Estelle, Mamasita, Red Door Yum Cha, and Mr Miyagi, which will be serving its famous Nori Tacos. As for drinks, MRC beverage manager Dan Schwarze is creating cocktails in the Moet & Chandon marquee, and at Black Caviar, Promenade and in the Little Melbourne Bar in the grandstand area. General admission guests can enjoy premium drinks in the Chandon Rose Bar and the Golden Ale Bar. ●

Fashion gets a revamp at Caulfield this year, with plenty of style action both trackside and digitally. Roving fashion illustrators on hand to capture your racewear look are just one of the highlights at the premium 1000-square-metre David Jones Fashion Stable, which aims to bring an all-inclusive party atmosphere to the occasion. Situated just five metres from the track and open to all racegoers, the marquee will include a Chandon Rose Bar, a premium wine bar – and a chance to mingle with the likes of BMW Caulfield Cup Carnival style ambassador Nadia Bartel. On BMW Caulfield Cup Day, two runway shows will feature cutting-edge labels such as Romance Was Born, Manning Cartell, Carla Zampatti, Camilla & Marc and Ellery. But the star attraction will be the Westfield Style Stakes – Fashions on
the Field transformed for the modern-day fashionista and propelled onto an exciting digital platform. Racegoers aged 18 or over can enjoy a professional photo shoot experience, complete with a Glam Squad of hair and make-up artists and photographers. They can then use the editing suite to select three favourite images to enter into the Style Stakes digitally – and upload the images into their own social media. There’s even a new category for the shy: squads (groups of two to eight). “We wanted to bring the fashion and racing concept into the 21st century,” says Peta Webster. “Fashion these days is a two-way conversation. People want to participate and share, and so much of that is done via social media so we knew we needed to enhance our approach to fashions this year.” ● LEANNE TOLRA ROMANCE WAS BORN \ SPRING SUMMER 2016

ADD SOME SPAR SP KLE TO YO Y UR CARNIVA NIV L NIVA
nce upon a time, the Spring Racing Carnival heralded the start of sparkling season. From the middle of spring, newspaper inserts were filled with the best deals on champagne, with the major chains cutting the price of Moet and Veuve Clicquot to ridiculous prices. Whether it’s the grand marques, grower champagnes, prosecco or Australian bubbles, we’ve got you covered.
Champagne Champagne is often a blend of chardonnay for elegance, pinot noir for perfume and pinot meunier for body – and champagne houses often have a preference for one grape to be dominant. See blanc de blanc on a label and you’ll be getting a wine made from chardonnay. Blanc de noir is made from the red grapes, pinot noir and meunier.
Cava Hailing from Catalonia, Cava is made from the macabeu, xarel-lo and parellada grapes. Law decrees that cava must be made in the same way as champagne – with a second fermentation and ageing in the bottle – and vines cannot be irrigated.
Prosecco Fresh and fruity, prosecco is actually a grape rather than a region. Prosecco’s roots are in Italy’s north-east near Veneto and the best examples come from around Valdobbiadene. ● BEN THOMAS
42 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ OCTOBER 12, 2016
UNDER $50 Airlie Bank Chardonnay Pinot Noir NV (Yarra Valley) $22; 13%
Segura Viudas Brut NV (Cava) $15; 12% The dominant macabeu grapes highlight the wine’s fresh acidity and floral, fruity flavours, with peach, tropical fruits and lime. Dry and refreshing, it’s soft, easy to drink and quite the bargain. ●
Umberto Luigi Domenico Cosmo Extra Dry NV (Prosecco DOC) $20; 11.5% Smelling of pear, Jonathan apple and biscuit, this is a clean and crisp wine – the perfect start to a long lunch – with a smooth mousse, chalky grip and gentle flavours to its lengthy finish. ●
Airlie Bank is part of the Punt Road stable of wines. Smelling of lemon zest, white stonefruits and marzipan, this hits the mouth with a wash of vigorous bubbles that deliver rich flavours and pithy citrus. ●
Serge Mathieu T Tradition Blanc de Noirs Brut NV (Champagne) $49.99; 12.5%
Aubert et Fils Brut NV (Champagne) $25; 12%
From Epernay in Champagne and exclusive to Dan Murphy’s, this is about as cheap as champagne gets in Australia. Golden stonefruit and Salada biscuit aromas lead to a vigorous mousse, lemon sherbert vibrancy and a toasty finish. ●
Blanc de Noirs is 100 per cent pinot noir or, as the label says, pur pinot. It is subtle and complex, with cherry, brioche and chalky minerality – as crisp and refreshing as a spring morning. ●
Chandon Brut Rose NV (Australia) $32; 12.5%
If pink had a flavour, it would be this – it’s all rose petals, strawberries, cherries and Scotch finger biscuits. It’s bright, refreshing and has zippy grippy acid. This would be perfect with a parfait. ●
SPLASH OUT Louis Barthelemy Brut Amethyste NV (Champagne) $55.80; 12.5%
Bay of Fires Pinot Noir Chardonnay Rose (Tasmania) $35; 12.5% This is a cracking rose – one of Australia’s best. Bursting with strawberries and citrus, it’s lively and refreshing with a terrific structure. There’s creaminess and grip and it’s a joy to drink. Just delicious. ●
Rich, complex aromas of citrus, stonefruit, salada and lemon zest lead into a vigorous mousse and intense, crisp flavours. ● Billecart Salmon Brut Rose NV $120; 12% The NV Champagne rose that all others are gauged against. Aniseed, red berry, cherry and grilled peach aromas are complex and refined and there’s a line of energetic pithy citrus and cherry, raspberry flavours. ●
Domaine Parigot & Richard Cremant de Bourgogne Rose NV (Burgundy) $42.30; 12.5%
Taittinger Comtes de Champagne 2006 (Champagne) $350; 12.5% This wine is made using chardonnay grapes from grand cru regions. This is a complex champagne, with finesse and power, stonefruit, a bright orange and lemon rind aroma and a touch of escargot pastry. There’s an underlying drive to the 96 grapefruit, white peach, fennel seed and 100 mineral salinity. ● (ISTOCK)
Using 100 per cent pinot noir, the grape’s strawberries and raspberry traits lead to smoky berry and blood orange flavours. There’s a touch of sweetness, but a line of chalky acid brings it into balance. ●

Louis Barthelemy was founded in Epernay in Revolution and founded the house of Baudry Lebrun & Cie.

It is today amongst the most highly rated Champagne houses. Champagne Louis Barthélémy is described as a brilliantly clear champagne with hints of gold. It is fresh yet rich on round with red fruit, a touch of brioche Carefully curated, a perfect balance between intensity and freshness; the characteristics of all things beautiful.

illian Frank remembers first going to Oaks Day in the mid-1950s. Newly arrived from London, she’d just started working at the new Elizabeth Arden hairdressing salon in Melbourne. “When I unpacked my luggage, my sister was shocked at my lace dress and parasol – which I still have. She asked me where I was planning on wearing it and I said, ‘At the races!’ says Lillian. “I’d worn the same outfit at Royal Ascot that year and was photographed by everybody. So I attended the spring carnival for the first time in that outfit. I vividly remember the beautiful roses and perfectly manicured lawns, which still look fabulous today.” Lillian says that, while fashions have changed, Oaks Day is still a much anticipated opportunity to enjoy a glass of bubbles with friends. “Some of the fashion now is disappointing – they wear evening wear for daytime! And the introduction of fascinators is somewhat perplexing to me. But the marquees are beautiful,” she says. “I still love Oaks Day. It’s a wonderful opportunity to see friends and there’s the fun of getting dressed up and the champagne. I look forward to going to see people and to be seen – what else in life is there?” Designer Prue Acton launched her fashion label in Melbourne in the 1960s and caused a stir at the races during the 1970s and ’80s.
“Derby Day was known for being super-elegant, Cup Day was outrageous and Oaks Day was about detail and refinement.” For Ann Peacock, Crown Casino’s general manager of community and charity, Oaks Day is a mixture of business and pleasure as Crown has been the major sponsor of the event for the past 22 years. “The scenery is beautiful and the ladies make an effort to look beautiful, too. Oaks Day comes back to being classic, stylish and pretty. That hasn’t changed,” she says. A highlight for Ann was in 2011 when Sex and the City star Sarah Jessica Parker added some Hollywood glamour to the day. “Everyone was waiting for her arrival, from the Birdcage to the Crown marquee. There
Marcia Hill and her dapper bookmaker husband, Sid, have been a familiar sight at Oaks Day for decades. Sid passed away this year, but Marcia will continue to cut a stylish figure at Oaks Day – an event she first attended when she was 18 or 19. “A room in my house would be filled with clothes, stockings, handbags
and hats during carnival week. I always plan two outfits for each day – one for warm weather and one for the cold. One of my most versatile outfits is a little black Valentino suit,” says Marcia. “I think some of the elegance has gone and it’s a bit over the top with celebrities. And a glass of wine is pretty expensive these days, too! But Oaks Day is still a day for the ladies and I love to see what everyone is wearing. “If I see someone wearing something gorgeous I’ll try to see the label. I catch up with friends – although I always warn them to talk to me before the first race. Then I mark their race books to indicate where they might want to put a bet and I remind them not to come back to me later and say, ‘But Marcia, you said …’” …’ ● SARAH MARINOS

“I first went to Oaks Day when I was about 20 and didn’t wear a hat,” she laughs. “About 1979 I thought we had to claim the week for Australian designers so one year I dressed in this amazing white satin jacket – a space-age-style outfit – and my picture went all over the world.” Prue was an Oaks Day regular for the next decade and remembers her designers and team taking the afternoon off to show their latest creations at Flemington. “The boys dressed well too with pretty shirts, buttonholes and their spring suits. Some of the boys booked a table at their favourite restaurant months ahead of Oaks Day because they never knew who they might meet and take out to dinner on the night,” she says.

were hundreds of people gathered to see her and there were tears when she walked through the mounting yard and then presented the trophy. She looked beautiful and was the epitome of what Oaks Day is about,” says Ann. “It is the most important day of the carnival for me and I also love it when the day is over too because the pressure is enormous! Once the presentation is over then I can relax a little. Some years I come back to Crown and celebrate with the winners. Other times I will be sitting at my kitchen bench eating pizza or party pies at 8 o’clock at night.”

t was one of the most memorable moments in the history of Australian sport. A diminutive woman holding aloft the 2015 Melbourne Cup, railing against chauvinism in the racing industry and telling those who believe women don’t have what it takes to win to “get stuffed, because … we just beat the world”. Michelle Payne’s astonishing race to become the first woman to win a Melbourne Cup and her explosive victory speech made headlines around the world. While there’s little doubt Michelle and many women like her have battled to make their way in a male-dominated industry, more and more females are exerting their influence in positions of power.

The vet grace forbes
WOMEN OF M ICHELLE PAYNE AFT AF T ER HER MELBOURNE CUP WIN
Racing Victoria’s veterinary services manager Grace Forbes has been with the organisation for 10 years. She studied Veterinary Science at the University of Melbourne after deciding she wanted to be a vet when she was six or seven years old. “My grandpa was a farrier who worked at Yarra Glen Racecourse for years and when I was two he gave me a little grey Welsh mountain pony. I called her Pixie and she was the start of my love of horses. “My first job was at a veterinary practice in Kilmore that specialised in taking care of racehorses. Later I returned to university to study Equine Medicine and Surgery and, because I loved the races, during that time I became a vet with Racing Victoria. “I taught at the University of Melbourne for a period and by the time I left about 75 per cent of vet science students were female. A lot of our race-day veterinary staff are women and our manager of Equine Welfare is female. I have to go to stables regularly to do inspections and there are a huge number of women working as track work riders, assistant trainers, trainers and stable hands. “Being a woman has never been an issue in my work. The only funny moment was one day when I first started working for Racing Victoria and a couple of the race day staff told me that when one of the other male vets was on duty they called him ‘Doc’. They looked hesitantly at me and said, ‘So can we call you Doc, too?’. “When I was at vet school I did some work experience at Randwick Equine Centre in NSW and there was a veterinarian there called Leanne Begg. She was the first female vet I saw working in the racing industry and made a lasting impression on me.” ● CONTINUED NEXT PAGE

to get through their schooling and do their apprenticeship at the same time. “There has been an increase in the number of females applying to the program – even before Michelle Payne won the Melbourne Cup. After her win, there was a significant increase from young women wanting to get involved and not just as a jockey. “I get the biggest thrill from interviewing a 14-year-old who comes into the apprentice program and is really nervous and who then goes out and races on an international stage.” ●
Melissa Weatherley manages Racing Victoria’s Apprentice Jockey Training Program. About 23 per cent of the 45 in the program are women – up from 10 per cent in 2005. Melissa has studied careers counselling for elite athletes and has worked as a community education co-ordinator with Racing Victoria. “I grew up on a dairy farm outside Sale and wanted a horse but dad said horses ate too much grass! I borrowed my cousin’s horse one school holiday and had it in the front paddock. A few of dad’s friends drove past and rang him because they couldn’t believe we had a horse. But it was only on loan! “When I joined Racing Victoria almost five years ago I visited primary schools with 1992 Melbourne Cup winner, Subzero. That role was all about promoting a love of horses and encouraging young people to think about careers in the racing industry. “Now I work with coaches and a safety and welfare officer to support our apprentice jockeys. I manage time-tabling when apprentices come from across the state to Melbourne for training. I also work with the people who teach apprentices about nutrition and race riding and with our physiotherapists and sports psychologists. I help the apprentices who are still in school

Amanda Elliott was elected to the Victoria Racing Club Committee in 2002. In 2011, she made history when she became vice chairman – the VRC’s first woman executive office holder. She is overseeing the new grandstand project at Flemington. “My father was vice chairman of the VRC in the early 1980s and to be the first woman to hold the position means a great deal to me. I was the only female on the board for a number of years, but we now have four women – almost 50 per cent of the board. “The business of the VRC crosses many areas – membership, hospitality, entertainment, sport, fashion, food – and I think women know some of those areas better. Forty per cent of our members are female. Considering women weren’t allowed to be members until 1982, that’s an extraordinary take-up. If you have that many female members, the board needs to reflect that.
“When I was first asked to be part of the VRC administration I didn’t have time because I was married to someone [John Elliott] who was heavily involved in football, politics and business. When we parted company, joining the board gave me a chance to do something about a sport I’ve always loved. “Women have played an important background role in racing for a long time and we’re now in an age that allows them to take more prominent roles. The fact that a female won the Melbourne Cup for the first time last year had so much resonance. It created this incredible level playing field. “Many other women are also making important contributions, such as Sheila Laxon – the first female trainer to win the Caulfield Cup and Melbourne Cup – and Gai Waterhouse. “I don’t think any woman in the racing industry feels excluded now. As in any area of life, you just need to have the guts to have a go.” ●
“It’s part of my job to organise ticketing and hotels for the international owners and trainers and to host them on race day. I enjoy being part of a big event and to see it all come together is great “I’m aware I’m in an industry that is quite male dominated but it hasn’t been a challenge for me. We’re ahead of places like England, which is still very traditional, but I think Japan and Hong Kong have more women in senior positions in racing.” ●
Jane Rogan has been international racing co-ordinator at Racing Victoria since 2008. After finishing high school in Melbourne she studied horse management and worked on horse-breeding properties in Ballarat, Ireland and Italy. She joined Racing Victoria in an administration position before moving to the international racing role. “I was a horse-mad girl but grew up in a family with no interest in horses! But I got a job at a horse breeding farm in Victoria working with the yearlings and took them to “to see it sales. After that I worked at all come a quarantine farm in Ireland together is and then in Rome with great” thoroughbred yearlings. “When I returned home I grew sick of getting up at 2am to go to work, but I wanted to stay in racing so I joined Racing Victoria. I became PA to Leigh Jordan, who recruits international horses to race here, and now I focus purely on that international side. “I’m involved in marketing and promotion of the carnival overseas and I liaise with international trainers and owners and with race clubs in Japan, France, Ireland, England and Hong Kong. I co-ordinate the horses’ quarantine before they come to Australia and when they arrive here.

The Tatura races were a big event in her calendar and I inherited her love for racing, although I dipped in and out as my children arrived.

This year we launched a scholarship program to encourage women jockeys to have safe and successful careers. “While there are more women involved in racing, there’s a fair distance to go. But that’s because of tradition – racing was something men did on a Saturday afternoon while women were at home. Women who succeeded often came from families where their fathers were trainers, jockeys or veterinarians. That is changing.” ●

CRAIG WILLIAMS’ SIGHTS ARE ON THE RACE THAT HA GOT AW HAT AWAY WAY
50 THE WEEKLY REVIEW \ OCTOBER 12, 2016
or a man who claims he is not a natural, Craig Williams has made a pretty good fist of his 25 years in the saddle. “I was always a grafter; I was never gifted as a rider so I’ve had to work hard at it,’’ he says. At 39 the champion jockey is at the top of his game, having just notched up his fifth victory in the Melbourne riding premiership. But for all his success, racing’s ultimate prize, the Melbourne Cup, has proven elusive as racing’s gods have cruelly conspired against him several times in recent years. “The Melbourne Cup is a race that every jockey dreams of winning and I would love to have it on my record when I look back on my career but, to date, luck hasn’t been with me,’’ he says. If not for his renowned hard work and persistence, he might never have ridden a single winner, let alone the slew of major race wins locally and overseas that has seen him admired and respected throughout the racing world. The son of successful jockey-turnedtrainer Allan Williams and grandson of prominent trainer Tom Harrison, young Craig dreamed of a career in racing. But in his early teens such hopes appeared forlorn. After several falls from ponies, he’d lost all confidence around horses. “I had a job with my brothers feeding horses every morning and couldn’t even get into the paddock with the mares, that’s how bad it was.’’ To compound matters, his poor diet,
which included a couple of ice-creams each day, saw his weight balloon. But everything changed the day Craig watched his cousin Travis Harrison ride his first winner. The two boys had grown up together dreaming of being jockeys. “I went to Travis’ first race meeting and he had three rides and at his second ride he had a winner,” says Craig. “I thought, ‘Wow, that was so special’, and I came home and said I wanted to be a jockey.’’ With a lot of assistance from nutritionists and sports-science professionals, Craig got his weight under control and in 1993 he
However hard work eventually paid off and, after winning a maiden race on a horse named Tobougg, he retained the ride in a group1 race in France, taking the place of the stable’s main rider, who was injured. Two weeks later Craig and Tobougg won England’s biggest two-year-old race, the Dewhurst Stakes, and Craig’s international career was off and running. After a season in Dubai and three in Hong Kong, he arrived back in Australia in 2005, teaming up with trainer David Hayes. The partnership brought amazing success: Craig won three Melbourne riding

“The Melbourne Cup is a race that every jockey dreams of winning but, to date, luck hasn’t been with me” commenced a successful apprenticeship under his father. Three years later he had to overcome the trauma of losing his lifelong mate Travis in a car accident. Not long after completing his apprenticeship and just days after achieving a breakthrough group1 success on Grand Echezeaux in the Australasian Oaks in Adelaide in 2000, Craig took off for England to work for trainer Mick Channon. But it meant starting at the bottom again. “The first month in England I could have walked faster than the horses I was given to ride,’’ he says.

premierships, as well as the Golden Slipper on Miss Finland. The pair later split but the winners continued for Craig and, in 2011, having won the Caulfield Cup on Southern Speed and Cox Plate on Pinker Pinker, he was on the verge of an unprecedented spring treble on Dunaden in the Melbourne Cup. But fate intervened when Craig was suspended for causing interference at a country meeting days before the Cup and missed out on the winning ride. On the day of the Melbourne Cup he went to watch a movie rather than put

himself through the agony of watching Dunaden run and subsequently win. “Of course it affects you. I was disappointed – no, gutted might be a better word.’’ There was another cruel twist the next year when he turned down a ride on Melbourne Cup winner Green Moon to stick with Dunaden, on whom he had just won the Caulfield Cup. Helping Craig through those tough times was Larysa, whom he married in 2008. He says she and their four children, Viktor, Olena, Oliver and Summer, have been a huge part of his subsequent success.
“It [family] gives you a true perspective on how things work and when your children aren’t well, you realise [racing’s] only a job so it gives me a really good balance.’’ Also part of the success are the team Craig has behind him, headed by his father and his manager, Mark Guest. “He’s still my coach now,’’ says Craig of his dad. “He doesn’t run around the track with me or ride the bike, but he’s still my coach. I’m very lucky in that if it is not my family, it is my core group of friends that are the reason why I am where I am, no doubt.’’ Craig turns 40 next year – well past retirement age for the majority of elite sportspeople – but he has no plans to hang up the saddle. “Over the history of jockeys, [because of injury] not many have been fortunate enough to choose when they end their careers. I just hope I’m one of those lucky ones.’’ One thing seems certain: Craig is not going to follow his dad into the training ranks once his riding days are over. “I respect them, but it’s just too hard.’’ ● ANDREW GARVEY

Horse sense RAELENE HARRISON IS DRIVING RACING’S NEW EQUINE WELFA F RE PROGRAM FA
s a toddler Raelene Harrison played dress-ups with her dog but the playtime was really about learning a life lesson. The pooch was a cross-breed – a Labrador with corgi legs that looked all the more ridiculous in the outfits. “Called Pal, after his love of canned dog food, he started my love of animals,” says Raelene. Dogs, horses and the Dalai Lama provided the lessons that put Raelene on her life’s path. She recently took on the newly created role of equine welfare manager at Racing Victoria, with responsibility for ensuring the welfare of racehorses from birth, through their racing career and to retirement. It is a mammoth task and has only just begun but Raelene is a powerhouse. Not only is she a corporate lawyer and an animal ethicist, with degrees in law, equine science and commerce, she has volunteered for animal welfare groups for years. She’s also on the board of Charles Sturt University’s School of Animal and Veterinary Science and secretary of the Noah’s Bark Dog Rescue group.
With the slight build of a jockey, she looks just as comfortable in jodhpurs and riding boots as a business suit and heels. Down-time sees her at home with her three rescue dogs, two from the Save-A-Dog group that has a “no kill” policy – something that reflects Raelene’s personal philosophy when it comes to rescue dogs and retired racehorses. She has two retired racehorses of her own – acquired through Racing Victoria’s Off The Track program, which rehomes and retrains racing thoroughbreds for other equestrian pursuits – and a former stockhorse. But, back to that little girl and her dog, Pal, who started it all. “Poor Pal would be dressed up and left on the neighbour’s doorstep and I’d ring the bell, and laugh; Pal was a gentle, loving dog and good with kids,” she says. “[Those playful times with Pal] taught me compassion, respect and responsibility toward animals.” She learnt another lesson through Shanna, a Belgian shepherd-cross she adopted from the RSPCA. Shanna died two years ago, aged 15. “That started my awareness of the role of
animal rescue groups in rehoming dogs; at a younger age you don’t understand,” she says. Raelene began volunteering for animal welfare groups after moving from Sydney to Melbourne in 1999, not only using her legal skills but mucking out kennels too. It involved hugging lots of dogs, washing lots of blankets, making up feeds – anything to contribute in line “with my passion for animal welfare, law and governance”. As a legal practitioner she began specialising in animal ethics and welfare, then gained a bachelor degree in equine science as well as a stablehand certificate. With her experience she was a perfect fit for Racing Victoria’s equine welfare manager role. “Earlier this year, Racing Victoria endorsed an Equine Welfare Strategy, which outlines several initiatives to ensure the industry remains focused on improving the welfare of thoroughbred racehorses before, during and after racing,” says Racing Victoria’s chief executive officer, Bernard Saundry. The issue of horse welfare has been brought into sharp relief during the past

two Melbourne Cups due to the deaths of pre-race favourite Admire Rakti and seventh place-getter Araldo on Cup day in 2014, and of crowd favourite Red Cadeaux after last year’s race. Racing Victoria says the deaths were not the catalyst for formalising its equine welfare programs but they were a factor in the decision to help fund a $5.2-million study with the University of Melbourne into minimising horse injuries. Preventing race-day injuries is a key part of Raelene’s responsibilities for implementing initiatives and co-ordinating programs for horse welfare throughout their lives. “By 2020 our vision is to be regarded as having the world’s best equine welfare practice in racing,” she says. “We believe there is a home for every healthy thoroughbred after racing and Racing Australia data shows that 90 per cent of racehorses are [already] rehomed to the equestrian, pleasure riding and breeding industries.” She should know – Raelene has ridden

horses since she was eight and rehomed and retrained two former racehorses. She bought a syndicate share in a racehorse with friends and, when the horse was retired after one start, she took the mare home. “She’s quite spoilt now. I take her riding and do ground work; using clicker training I have taught her to smile on cue.” Raelene has a picture on her phone of a happy 12-year-old mare, Millie, who really is smiling. Her thoroughbred horse Gordon, now 10, taught her persistence and determination. Raelene had a tiny share in Gordon and had no say when the syndicate sold him. But she followed his racing career and kept in touch with the trainer for more than four years until he was retired. “I kept in contact to make sure he was well cared for and, when he was to retire, the trainer contacted me. Gordy came home to me,” she says. Her final lesson came from the Dalai Lama when she attended one of his public teachings at Dharamsala in 2008. “[I learnt] compassion for all living beings and I’ve applied that to animal welfare and my love of animals,” Raelene says. ● SUE HEWITT

HOW TO BUY A CUP WINNER WITHOUT REALLY TRYING
ometimes it’s the little things. Maybe it’s calling your mum out of the blue, lending a mate a few bucks or being nice to a neighbour. For podiatrist, Sam Brown, it was an email to family and friends, about 50 all up, asking if they’d like to join a horse-racing syndicate – a syndicate that would ultimately win the richest race in the country, thanks to a horse called Prince of Penzance and jockey Michelle Payne. The deal was that, for $5000 each, the Men in Hats syndicate would buy a share in a few horses. Nothing ambitious, just a few horses here and there and maybe a country cup would come their way – if they were lucky. A few mates, Mike Botting, Greg Williams, Scott Jenke, Tim Ashdod and Sam’s brother Adrian, took the bait. “Realistically I thought that after three years our money would be gone and we would have a few stories to tell,” Sam says. “We just became more in love with the sport and this was the next step, to have a crack at ownership. The time was right.” The group eventually became part-owners of Prince of Penzance, which won the 2015 Melbourne Cup as a rank outsider on odds of 100/1, ridden by the first female jockey to win the event. Nice return for a casual email. The syndicate’s early investments were in “tried” horses (those that have already raced) but, after that soaked up a fair amount of the kitty for very little reward, they made the decision to buy into a yearling. “We decided we would go with Darren

Weir. At the time he was just a big country trainer. We thought if we went with him he’s got a good strike rate and maybe the fees will be less,’’ says Sam. “We had enough money to have a bit of a spec on one yearling and that one yearling happened to be Prince of Penzance, so we hit the jackpot straight away. Of all the horses we ran into, that was the one we decided to go with. We compare it to winning Tattslotto, but more fun. There’s probably a few other people who are kicking themselves that … they didn’t jump on board.” The syndicate won $300,000 at the Cup, which seems a tidy sum, but Sam says after splitting it six ways, paying training fees,
PRINCE OF PENZANCE \ MELBOURNE CUP 2015
buying into more horses and spending “about $10,000 in merchandise”, the money quickly disappeared. Despite some stories going around, after a throwaway line to the press, the group says they did not keep the syndicate secret from their wives and partners. Well … maybe a little bit. The initial $5000 was kept on the down-low but after Prince of Penzance starting winning, it became too hard. “Once the horse was making money, they knew very, very quickly. They were all on
board,” Sam says. A year after the historic win, Sam says little has changed in his life. “I think your friends get more of a kick out of it, and certainly my parents. And my father gets a kick out of telling his mates that his son is a part-owner of a Melbourne Cup winner. “Prince of Penzance is almost like a member of the family now and that’s probably what we regard him as. He’s almost like having another pet really.” Prince of Penzance was only half of that historic race; the other was Michelle Payne, the first female winning jockey. Men in Hats are still big supporters of Michelle, even since her recent injury woes. “Despite the negative public comments about her being a jockey, we were rapt to have her riding Prince of Penzance and we were rapt to see her have success,” Sam says. “We would love nothing else, from our syndicate, to see her back on the horse and continue the fairy tale. Unfortunately, being a 10 per cent shareholder, we don’t get much say in the big decisions.” And while he’s thrilled with Prince of Penzance’s career so far, Sam says the horse “doesn’t owe us anything”. “I’d just love him to have a good, safe retirement and live for many years. Hopefully 10 years down the track he’s still around and I can go visit him in a paddock somewhere and show my kids. “That would be fantastic.” ● JAN FISHER

ABOUT THE STALLHOLDERS Bill’s Farm shop 17-20, Deli Hall Bill Tzimas is a former teacher who opened his stall 27 years ago after falling in love with the market and thinking he might “do something different for a few years”.

Dianne’s Delights shop 43-46, Deli Hall Lianna and Paris Protopapas have for 18 months been running the business established by Lianna’s parents, Dianne and Con Louca. Their bright, colourful display of fresh, handmade antipasto products draws customers across the aisles. Many of the recipes are Dianne’s and she still makes many of the dips and antipasto. The stall is known widely for its “three-in-one” dip – a basil pesto, mascarpone and tomato pesto combo – and the bold flavours of the range that includes beetroot, spicy hummus, eggplant and capsicum dips.
Curds & Whey shop 12-13, Deli Hall Anna Burley has worked at the QVM for almost 40 years and opened her cheery corner stall 19 years ago. In its early days, the store mainly sold bulk butter and cheddar cheese and, although she still sells handmade butter, Anna and her son Robert have expanded the range to include a selection of exclusive artisan cheeses produced in Australia and overseas.

Timing can make a huge difference to an event, says Kate Stewart. “Half an hour to an hour makes a big difference.”
7PM START As soon as you move your invitation to 7pm, there is an assumption that dinner (or a suitable dinner substitute) will be served.
6-8PM START Expect that a number of guests will be coming from work (so ensure you set aside space for bags, coats, laptops). Dinner is not typically expected in this time slot, so canapes and refreshing drinks are suitable. Have snacks out for guests to help themselves, or one or more substantial items.
8PM START Move your invitation time to 8pm onwards and once again expectations shift. If guests are arriving from 8-8.30pm, a full dinner is not required. Instead serve up a lovely supper, gorgeous cheeses, perhaps some late-night dumplings – or a decadent dessert. ●

During an Easter party two years ago, Kate and her housemate presented a shared lunch with personalised paper plates. They had someone dressed up as an Easter bunny who led everyone on an egg hunt by the canal. “And while they were doing that, I had my sister and helper in here transforming the space so that when they came back we had this huge dessert table and espresso martinis. “Everyone’s been outside, they’ve run around, they’ve collected Easter eggs and are excited by that, then they came back in and it was, ‘Oh, wow! There’s something else’. And it makes it incredible.”
DELEGATE Even if you’re doing it on your own, you still need to delegate. Get a friend to bring ice two hours before the party starts. If a family member is great at music, put them in charge of the entertainment. “People love something to do,” she says. “For me, I will offer to bring dessert and, half the time, I’ll buy it on the way.

The promise Brow Queen Eileen Harper promises beautifully defined brows that suit the shape and structure of your face. The reality You only have to flick through Instagram to know eyebrows are an important thing. Their shape and colour can have a dramatic effect on how your face looks. “If the eyes are the window to your soul, the eyebrows are the frames,” Eileen says as she leads me to the treatment room. The former model says no matter what shape is in fashion, your eyebrows need to be sculpted to suit your face. We decide thin brows are no good for me because my face is reasonably wide but I could afford to have them tidied up at the ends. I have a few gaps from getting overzealous with the tweezers as a teenager, so she also tints my brows to fill them in for an even look.
The pay-off I leave the salon with my brows looking Hollywood-perfect. Eileen says that, with regular care, the gaps may start to grow in but her salon also offers microblading – a subtle semi-permanent tattoo – if they don’t. The pain factor Waxing always smarts a bit but it’s over very quickly and Eileen chats to distract you. Who should try it? Anyone who wants their eyebrows looking fabulous and just in time for spring racing. The bill? It’s $60 for the tint, wax and consultation.

Ward & Wylie Millinery opens their pop-up shop in South Yarra every year in the lead-up to the Spring Racing Carnival.
Who’s behind the counter? Luci Giblin started the business with her mum Yvonne in 2002. “It was off the strength of a dream I had about my grandma telling me to remember the cocktail hats at the top of her wardrobe,” Luci says. She was creating flowers and feather pins at the time, but the dream inspired her to bring back the style of hat worn in her grandmother’s day. “We learnt from an old lady who used to be the head milliner at Buckley and Nunn; she taught us how to do the traditional cocktail hat.” Luci’s background is in floristry and Yvonne is a skilled milliner. “I love flowers and colours and structure and shape, so I love putting it all together, but mum’s really good at actually sewing – I don’t have the patience for that!” What’s in store? “Pill boxes, berets, we’re doing lots of lace, we’re doing leather, we’re doing lots of floral

URBAN SPACES CHADSTONE
hadstone, Australia’s fashion capital, this week unveils the completion of the first and most significant phase of its $660million development project. With Chadstone a long-established international leader and trend setter in fashion retail, it should come as no surprise that its latest development represents another ground-breaking design first for Australia. Its new development centres on a soaring 31-metre-high atrium and is sheltered by a spectacularly curved 1000-tonne glass gridshell roof, the first of its kind in Australia. The transparent roof floods the centre with natural light and provides Chadstone customers with column-free shopping, thanks to an innovative design by global leaders in design and engineering. Chadstone co-owners Vicinity Centres and Gandel Group have been building the centre’s latest precinct over the past two years, with a focus on opening up new horizons in retail, dining and entertainment experiences for Chadstone’s local and international shoppers. Set to open on Thursday, October 13, the first phase features international flagship stores, more than 60 new retail shops, a dining terrace and a state-of-the-art Hoyts cinema complex. Chadstone attracts about 20 million Australian and international visitors annually and when the project is completed in mid-2017 they will have the choice of nearly 600 retailers, with the convenience of the centre’s already completed 10,000 car parks and 14-bay centralised bus interchange. Vicinity Centres CEO and managing director Angus McNaughton says the world-class architecture at Chadstone reflects the essence of leading flagship fashion retail and iconic developments from around the globe to create a fresh customer experience based on the best of international design. “From London to Germany, then the Czech Republic to Australia, the impressive design and development of Australia’s first glass gridshell roof represents the innovation and collaboration of some of the best architects and engineers from around the world,” he says. Angus says the project aims to evolve Chadstone and take it beyond being the best in fashion and general retail to offer the best customer experience across shopping, entertainment and dining. “We have designed and delivered a perfect showcase for the premium customer experience we offer at Chadstone. This is one of the largest milestones in Chadstone’s history and reinforces its position as Australia’s number one shopping destination.” ● LIZ McLACHLAN email@example.com
GLASS GRIDSHELL ROOF
NEW DINING PRECINCTS
Chadstone will introduce two new dining precincts – a dining terrace and 1300-seat food gallery. The new dining terrace takes its inspiration from around the world and showcases seven new restaurants with wide appeal, some of which will be opening branches in a shopping centre or outside of Melbourne or Sydney’s CBD for the first time. These restaurants include the Burger Project by Neil Perry, Woodstock Pizzicheria, Marae Izakaya and Mexican street food favourite Fonda. There will be more than 20 outlets in the food gallery, offering local and international flavours. ●
More than 60 new retail stores open this week in the first phase of Chadstone’s redevelopment. They include two-level stores for international fashion giants Uniqlo and H&M, along with flagship retailer Sephora and Tesla Motors’ first integrated Melbourne retail dealership. At completion in mid-2017, the development will feature more than 100 new retailers, including international luxury designer stores such as Valentino, Celine and Loewe, premium international stores including the Kooples, Reiss and Michael Kors, and Australia’s first Legoland Discovery Centre. ●
Australia’s first glass gridshell roof covers more than 7000 square metres and free-spans up to 42 metres over Chadstone’s new precinct. Based on a lattice framework, the roof derives its strength from its double curvature. Meticulously designed, planned and executed in Australia and overseas, the roof includes 2700 glass panels of varying shapes and sizes all seamlessly mapped to complete the structure. Each panel was made and coated in Germany then individually installed. ●

BEAUTIFUL BLEND 31 SEYMOUR R AVENUE, ARMADA D LE, 3143 DA
s home renovations go, this one is a beauty. Given the names behind it – Camilla d’Antoine, the founder of design brand Mozi and her husband Tim, the lead builder at Hobart’s Mona – it was always going to be special. From the ocean breeze-coloured front door to the pale pink of the hall and the clever use of recycled materials, it is a breath of fresh air. The couple commissioned architect Daryl Pelchen to take a neat but dated double-fronted Hawthorn brick house and turn it into a dream home with all the bells and whistles. Along the way they respected its past, keeping Victorian features such as marble mantelpieces and the hallway arch. But in an engineering feat, they added a whole new section on the ground floor, a first floor and excavated to create a lower-ground-floor level. The house has the typical Victorian floor plan of four rooms off a central hall. The main bedroom at the front and its en suite are a showcase of high-end design such as Designers Guild ombre linen curtains and thick pile carpet in the bedroom. The en suite gets a modern-day reworking with black-and-white floor tiles, fully tiled white walls, a timber vanity and bespoke back-lit mirror. But the outstanding feature is the steel oval freestanding black bath by Spanish architect and designer Patricia Urquiola. “We wanted classic black and white, but with a tranquil feel,” Camilla says. Still in the old part of the house, the study has a wall of Cole & Son Versailles toile wallpaper juxtaposed against a rendered brick wall. A dark grey-painted mantelpiece is flanked by dark grey bookshelves to ceiling height. Wide oak floorboards unite the house from front to back, but a row of old bricks marks the transition from old to the new look of rustic/modern. “There is so much to love about this house,” Camilla says. “I love this room because of the volume, the light and the points of interest. It’s business at the front of the house and party at the back.”
The open-plan kitchen and living domain includes a sunken lounge with a French tiling system surrounding the open fireplace. Beside the lounge, the dining area with banquette seating is lit by a linear skylight with a Christopher Boots light fitting above the table. A honed concrete island bench with 200-year-old reclaimed Spanish tiles is the standout in the kitchen. On the other side of the bench, there is a Wolf oven, white-tiled splashback and integrated Lieberr fridge and freezer. The walk-in pantry is behind grey timber-panelled cabinetry. Metal-framed glass doors open the living area and kitchen to the back garden, the outdoor entertainment area and swimming pool. Camilla has combined her love of history with contemporary fittings and fixtures. For example, two windows on the walls beside the curved staircase leading to the first floor were sourced from a Sydney salvage yard, but originally came from the University of Sydney. The first floor has a retreat at the top of the stairs. Three bedrooms on this level are all the same size, with built-in wardrobes. The family bathroom nearby features Japanese wall tiles. Taking the stairs to the lower ground level, there is more history on display. The flooring of the theatre or rumpus room is in bricks from the site, laid in a herringbone pattern. The yellow barn door is a little bit of country in the city and the concrete ceiling is testament to the scale of the engineering. Glazed doors with metal frames open the rumpus room to a courtyard garden at the building’s side. There is another bathroom on this level, a cellar and a large laundry where two recycled porcelain sinks – complete with chips – from the science department of Sydney University are laundry troughs. With the wealth of detail at this house, the extras, spacious accommodation and high-end design, living in Armadale doesn’t get much better. ● MARIA HARRIS firstname.lastname@example.org

It’s hard to decide what’s most individual about this three-level Toorak townhouse. Is it the split-level ground-floor layout? Is it the partially zoned indoor and outdoor living spaces? Perhaps the secure basement garage and 1300-bottle temperature-controlled wine cellar qualify. Whichever you think takes the cake, there’s no disputing this place screams Toorak. Inside, parquetry floors create an elegant tone in the lounge and dining rooms. From here it’s up a few steps to a spacious study or fourth bedroom or through to the open-plan meals area and family room with gas fireplace. The kitchen overlooks this more casual living area and has black granite benches and stainless-steel appliances. There a door to a two-level courtyard with water feature. The main bedroom and two more bedrooms with built-in wardrobes are upstairs. The main has a walk-in wardrobe and spa en suite. Downstairs there’s a double garage, storeroom and wine cellar. All this is just minutes from Glenferrie Road trams, Kooyong Tennis and the Monash Freeway. ● JULIAN HEALEY
It’s relatively unheard of to find a house that’s been in one family’s hands for 104 years, let alone in Malvern. Oozing the history and warmth born of one-clan occupation, this 1912 house is in almost-original condition. That means massive scope for improvements. There’s a stateliness about the red-brick facade, which has a return verandah under timber fretwork. Tulip motifs in the fretwork are echoed in the interior leadlight. Three bedrooms branch off the foyer, while the fourth is secluded at the rear. Updated in the 1950s, the kitchen is basic yet bright, and the bathroom has a shower over a pink bath. The huge sitting room has an ornate ceiling, open fireplace and box bay window. The dining room opposite shares the same mint-coloured carpet and leadlight detail. The outhouse laundry and (second) toilet evoke early days, and there’s a carport attached to the garage. People with the vision to reinvent this timeless beauty should reap rich rewards. ● KAY KEIGHERY

Situated on the northern fringe of Mont Albert proper, this striking and impeccably presented postwar house not only commands a prime north-facing position but does so from a massive 2323-square-metre block. Built in 1950, the house makes the most of the incredible width of the block with a
prim facade edged by gardens and a practical semi-circular pebble driveway. Inside, polished timber floors in the hall lead first to the formal living and dining rooms, which have immediate visual impact. Carpet underfoot and a large open fireplace create a refined, warm ambience in the front-facing formal living room. Opposite, the dining area’s timber floors, garden view and

chandelier combine for a different but similarly elegant feel. The main bedroom and study are to the left of the entry. Zoned well away from the rest of the house, they share a spa en suite. The main suite has built-in wardrobes and there’s a built-in desk in the study. A second carpeted bedroom and the laundry are at the far end of the hall. Then the house

opens to a sky-lit white-tiled kitchen that steps down to an open-plan family and meals area. Folding doors extend this space to a courtyard perched above the mod-grass tennis court, pool and lawn. Upstairs there’s a second bathroom, with tub, and three loft-style bedrooms, each with built-in wardrobes and expansive northerly views. ● JULIAN HEALEY

BALWYN NORTH \ 11 STEPHENS STREET With two sleek storeys of curvaceous verandahs, Knowlton has been a landmark since 1945. The 21st century has done it proud: Elegantly extended, the house now has five communal areas and two ground-floor and two first-floor bedrooms. It’s capacious, and so is the garden – a deep, north-facing lawn with mature trees, a glass-fenced pool and spa and an outdoor dining area with a barbecue. Knowlton’s glamorous lair is the sunken living room, whose south wall is a gigantic curved bay window. The carpeted room has a slate fireplace and a french door to the verandah. Across the hall, the dining room flows gracefully into the contemporary meals and family area. The beige stone kitchen has an Ilve 900-millimetre range, Miele dishwasher and microwave and a breakfast bar whose curve echoes those of the facade. The sunny family area has a fireplace and sliding doors to the sandstone terrace and pool. An adjoining lounge could be converted to a bedroom. The ground-floor bedrooms have wardrobes and desks and share the travertine main bathroom. Upstairs, the main bedroom has an en suite with shower, walk-in wardrobe and retreat opening to the front balcony. Bedroom four opens to a north-facing terrace. There’s a fitted study and a bathroom.

The vendors, in a million-dollar renovation, have built a two-storey residence that beautifully blends the art deco rooms with new bedrooms, kitchen and a family area opening north to a decked garden. The original rooms – living and dining rooms, study, hall – have Tasmanian oak floorboards and leadlight sash windows. The adjoining living and dining rooms have brick open fireplaces. A brick-lined corridor leads to the contemporary family area, striking in grey Spanish tiles and timber ceiling fans. The kitchen is a highlight; Food Network-ready, it has Miele appliances and a walk-in pantry. Out on the deck, bamboo soars above a fire-pit area and a covered outdoor lounge with television point. On the first floor are four double bedrooms with spotted gum floorboards; two have en suites, two share the main bathroom, and all may use the three-desk study. There’s a double garage. ● ALISON BARCLAY
Late Victorian houses are one of Melbourne’s most ornate heritage styles. Well-kept and renovated ones such as this are particularly impressive. The facade is flawless. Leadlight glass, iron lacework, rendered brick and a tiled verandah set the scene for an interior of polished timber, ceiling roses, cornices and lofty ceilings. In the more modern parts of the house, things are decidedly contemporary, with a neutral colour scheme and downlights. The main bedroom has a walk-in wardrobe and en suite, while the other front bedroom has two built-in wardrobes. Next along is the formal lounge, warmed by an open fireplace. Across the hall is the central bathroom, which is large and modern. At the end of the hall the house expands to a bright and open-plan living, dining and kitchen area. The kitchen is tucked away to one side. On the other are the third bedroom and the laundry. Through doors at the rear, there’s a courtyard, pool and cabana with kitchenette, sauna, toilet and shower. ● JULIAN HEALEY
