Splashions on the Field: The funniest moments from a VERY wet race day.

Public Service Announcement: it’s very, very wet at Crown Oaks Day.

As we very well know, it takes a brave woman to step outside the house in heels on a rainy day.

Which is why we’re so impressed that people actually turned up at today’s Oaks Day Racing Carnival without a pair of these. 


Luckily, some people came prepared.

Unfortunately, the rain seems to have driven some of the other racegoers, er, a bit insane.


So go forth, brave racegoers, and drown your sorrows in champagne… Before you just, you know, drown.
