Sam wore a dark navy blue shift dress which stopped at her knees. 

To accessorise, she donned pearl earrings, a pair of nude strappy feels, and a matching nude clutch.

Sam’s toenails were painted red, while her fingers were a nude shade. She eased herself into the racing season by donning a natural makeup look. 

Her blonde locks were blow-dried straight and hung loosely over her shoulders while being held back by a subtle gold headband. 

And Richard, 60, was every bit the happy man as he walked alongside his wife of 10 months.

Sam was beaming as she made her way to the race course to meet fellow racing enthusiast Kate Waterhouse. 

Kate, 37, donned an all-white ensemble and added a pop of colour to her outfit with some lavender  heels.

The Sydney socialite also had a Channel Seven microphone in hand ahead of hosting duties on the big day.
