Girls take centre stage at Sydney gallops

Girls take centre stage at Sydney gallopsThere was some quality horse racing during Rosehill’s Girls’ Day Out meeting, and the ladies themselves even buckled up for a ride.

Four women climbed aboard a group of hunky NSW firefighters for a 70-metre piggyback down the Rosehill track on Saturday.

“I rode Adam, he was my horse,” said 19-year-old student Sonia Grnovic, who won the four-person race.

A large and boisterous crowd of 12,174 watched the action, which also featured the firefighters in their annual relay race, after they sold their 2014 calendar to the public.

Pampering took over the on-track events for the ladies – and some men – as racegoers took time out from sipping bubbly to have their make-up touched up at complimentary pamper tents positioned around the racecourse.

Janine Earl from Pure Chica said their biggest request from women had been for eye shadow to give them the “smokey-eye” look.

“And also a little bit of lippy and some powder to take away that shine, because it’s been quite a warm day today,” she said.

As part of the event women were also offered the chance to “dunk a hunk”, get a henna tattoo or a tarot card reading.
