Ssangyong Counties Cup Day

Great weather, fabulous fashions and a joyful crowd were among the big winners at this year’s superb Ssangyong Counties Cup Day.

Thousands turned out at Pukekohe Park for a near-on perfect day of exciting racing, entertainment and Fashions in the Field plus food and refreshments fit for a king. Pokeno local, Belinda Green took out the top prize in the female section of Fashions in the Field and Geoff Smith, the men’s section.
