DAMSELS dressed up to the nines and took a punt on the weather holding out at the Murwillumbah Cup today.
Annette Kitching wasn't going to let the chilly weather stop her from enjoying the day at the track.
She and her husband Brett, CEO of the Ipswich Racecourse were having a rare day at the races for the fun of it.
"We never get to enjoy the races," Mr Kitching said.
"We are always too busy organising it."
The pair has a house at Cabarita and said they loved the Tweed Valley.
"We had the Ipswich races last week that drew over 20,000 people," Mr Kitching said.
"It's great to be at Murwillumbah and not just watch the races, but admire the spectacular view across the valley."
"This is the most beautiful part of the world," Mrs Kitching said.
This premium event of the year for the Murwillumbah Jockey Club brought people from far and wide.
