Newsreader’s shock races dress revealed

SKY Sports radio newsreader Maddison-Clare Sloane is sure to turn heads with her unique "dress'' tomorrow when the mighty Winx tries to make it 16 straight Group 1s at Randwick.

That's right, Maddi's threads will consist of 348 commemorative tickets of Winx to win the Chipping Norton Stakes at $1.15.

We hope it doesn't rain. Or there are any paper cuts. And there's security to stop punters trying to pinch some of Maddi's dress that took a whopping 120 hours to make.

Maddi told us her dress was actually comfortable, but would be worn for the first race only after she wraps up an interview with Winx's part-owner, Debbie Kepitis.

"I can't sit down in it so I'll be on my feet for a while,'' Maddi said.

"And I noticed once the heat hits the dress, the tickets start to curl. I just hope Winx wins.''

Should Chris Waller's future Hall of Fame mare salutes, or should we say when she does salute, the TAB will donate $10,000 to the National Jockey's Trust and Equine Welfare Fund.
