Fashion and flair expected on Bendigo Cup day

BENDIGO, are you ready to strike a pose?

Bendigo Cup racegoers are encouraged to put their best foot forward in the Bendigo Advertiser and Telstra Hot 100 marquee at the Bendigo Cup. 

Bold fascinators and hats, bright colours and tailored suits are just some of the fashion trends expected at this year’s cup. 

Bendigo Advertiser photographers will be on hand to take your photograph in your finery, then it will get interesting. 

We will publish the hottest 100 racegoers online, and in the newspaper on November 2, and you can vote by text for who you like. 

The top 25 will be released on November 6, the top 10 on November 8 and the winners will be announced on November 10. 

There are big prizes up for grabs thanks to major sponsor, Telstra. 

Telstra has generously donated a stack of great prizes, including some of the latest mobile technology such as phones and tablets. 

Telstra retail operations manager Melissa Keen said the Bendigo Cup was one of the biggest events on the city’s social calendar and a great chance for Bendigoians to look their best. 

“We are encouraging people to come down to the tent and get involved on Cup Day,” she said. “It is about getting involved with the community.”
