First past the post in fashion stakes
DEVIN and Kimberley Moldenhauer are on track for a trifecta at this year's Coffs Cup.
But it has nothing to do with a racehorse.
The young couple are searching forthat outfit they hope will get them first past the post for the third year running in Fashions On The Field.
They're record is impressive two wins from as many starts but they're not about to let complacency set in.
The reigning King and Queen know many out there are queuing up to wrest their crown from them.
Their campaign begins in earnest today a mere 12 days from Cup Day when Kimberley will hit local fashion outlets.
Devin won't even think about his outfit until he sees what his wife has chosen, then it will be his turn.
It's a strategy which hasn't failed them yet.
Last year, Kimberley's suit and Devin's top hat and tails were popular with the punters, and more importantly, the judges.
"You need something that stands out," Kimberley said.
However, Devin was quick to add it also needed to be subtle.
"You don't want to stand out too much," he said.
