HEELS, lipstick, mascara, a fascinator and, of course, the dress are the most important things when it comes to Ladies Day at the race track.

Women spruced up on Saturday in blacks, whites and bright colours for the Oak Tree Ladies Day races.

Oak Tree Retirement Village regional manager Melissa Luck said they were proud to sponsor the event.

"The retirement village is right across the beautiful Condamine River from the race track," she said.

"We want to support the community as much as possible.

"We thought it would be a great lead-in also for the beginning of our Seniors Week celebrations."

Mrs Luck said most of their residents had come out for the day.

"We have heaps of our ladies here dressed up and winning a few dollars on the horses."

Oak Tree Retirement Village resident Junette Paskins said she had enjoyed the day.

"I haven't had a day out at the races for many years," she said.

"I had made a dress especially for the occasion however it turned out too cold to wear it.

"It's a fantastic day out anyway."

Turf Club committee president Jim Costello said there was a reasonable crowd on the day.

There were about 50 horses entered for the races.

He thanked Oak Tree for sponsoring the event and supporting the club.
