"We were very pleased the crowd, the attendance was a lot better than I thought it was going to be," Mrs Doyle said.
"Killarney had a bus load and maxi taxi full of people and Tannymorel had a maxi taxi as well, and there were plenty of Warwick people too," she said.
"The Fashions on the Field went really well and everyone received vouchers and cash, and some chocolates for the kids."
The Killarney Cup was won by Le Max, with jockey Cecily Eaton at the helm, followed by Hashtag Yolo and Our Clarky.
Local trainer Garry Schwenke with New Zealand-bred Virtuity came in 11th place out of the 12 entrants.
