THE horses are always the reason for the Warwick Picnic Races but without a doubt the fashions steal the show each year.

Fabulous frocks of all lengths and smart suits with ties were in abundance as patrons filled Allman Park on Saturday for the annual event.

First time Picnic Races patron, Jenna Pauli from the Sunshine Coast, said she thought it was a great day.

"Everyone is dressed so well and the whole place is looking good," Miss Pauli said.

"I would say that I am here for both the fashions and the horses, as well as visiting a friend.

"I would definitely come back for next year's Picnic Races if I still have connections in Warwick."

Warwick Picnic Race Club president Helen Lewis said the day was a success.

"We had a wonderful crowd and everyone seemed to have a good time," Mrs Lewis said.

"The numbers are what we anticipated and there are certainly a few extra because of the wonderful weather."
