Hundreds of people gathered at Narrogin Racing on Sunday for the biggest thoroughbred meeting of the year, featuring the XXXX Gold Narrogin Cup.

Punters from near and far flooded into the Narrogin Race and Pace grounds for the highly anticipated event.

Highlights of the day included Fashions on the fields for ladies, gents and children, face painting, and live music into the evening.

With a total of $70,000 in prize money up for grabs in the Cup, WA trainers Grant and Alana Williams won the feature race with talented galloper Burning Pride.
