The major race may have been in Melbourne, but there was still plenty of action, fun and fashion at Kalaru on Tuesday.
The Sapphire Coast Turf Club hosted a five-race card for its biennial Melbourne Cup Day meet.
People dressed in their best and came from across the Bega Valley and interstate for the event.
There was also the popular Fashions on the Field competition, with the theme for this year's event rose gold and metallic.
