GALLERY: 26 glamorous and outfits from the Zinc race day
THE Zinc Picnic Race Day was a huge success with almost thousands of people in attendance.
With clear blue skies, racegoers celebrated amongst friends and some good sparkling champagne.
Ross Morley added an $1000 to his winnings of the day taking out the Zinc cash give away.
Morley was surprised to win but with a few upcoming events said they money had come at a good time.
"It was a shock. I have a few children's birthday parties coming up so it is good timing,” he said.
"We usually come to the races and today has been a bonus.”
Gympie Turf Club president Shane Gill said it was great to see a large crowd to support a worthy cause.
"From the $15 entry fee, $3 was going to be donated to the Queensland Country Women's Association flood relief fund,” he said.
"It was the perfect way to bring a great day of country racing and raise much needed funds for our farmers in need.
"The weather was beautiful, it is great to see a warm winter day.”
Gill said the turf club's focus turned to the Nolan Muster Cup Race Day on August 17.
