28 fabulous pics from this year's Deighton Cup (PHOTOS)

Jul 25 2017, 5:41 pm

It was a stylish albeit somewhat rainy day this Saturday when the Deighton Cup took to the tracks at Hastings Racecourse, and Vancouver’s finest fashion lined the (fortunately undercover) stands.

The annual event is nothing if not colourful, and attendees dressed to the nines in their Saturday best. Towering hats, bright blazers, and patterned sundresses were seen aplenty as eight heats of horses raced around the track to cheering—and jeering—bettors.

Here’s a glimpse into the afternoon—because you just know it was an Instagram hotspot.

Me and my date for Deighton 🏇
