AugustFest, which ran from last Thursday to Saturday, delivered a fun-filled programme, super crowds, spectacular views, top-class racing - but it was Jacy Ybanes who went home with a big smile after taking home the top style award.

Fashion savvy racegoers turned out in their droves to compete for the covetable title of AYU Best Dressed - but Jacy was the lucky lady deemed most stylish on the day as fashionistas brought the curtain down on AugustFest in fine style.

The fashion was fierce and judges Anna Galvin, Grace Clifford and Marietta Doran had a tough challenge selecting 11 finalists each encompassed AYU’s ethos.

Originally from the Philippines, Jacy has been living in Ireland over 15 years and currently resides in Tralee. Jacy’s stunning look was a beautiful hot pink two piece from ASOS paired with a gold clutch bag and shoes, her headpiece was a stunning pink fascinator by Montgomory Millinery, which she borrowed for the occasion. Jacy told the judges how she felt the sleeves of the top reminded her of fashion from the Philippines, so she felt that she was wearing a bit of home!
