The Daily Advertiser’s readers have voted and the winner of the Gold Cup Hot 100 is … Sophie Anthony, of Wagga.
Our photographers scoured the crowds at this year’s Wagga Gold Cup and came up with a fashionable field of 100 racegoers, who were all in the running for a $500 spending spree at the Wagga Marketplace.
We narrowed the field from 100 down to 50, and then a final 10, with Ms Anthony taking the win in a close contest that saw her only seven votes ahead of her nearest rival.
Ms Anthony told The Daily Advertiser yesterday she was surprised, but excited by her win.
“My friends were really keeping an eye on the voting. They’d message me and tell me I was in the top 100, then the top 50 and then the final 10,” she said.
