Danelle Blackley, of Annah Stretton Birds of a Feather in Invercargill, is surrounded by floral dresses ideal for the Christmas races.

Clothing businesses in Invercargill have seen customers buying up large for Southland's biggest raceday of the year.

Between 8000 and 10,000 people are expected to attend the Christmas race meeting at Ascot Park on Saturday.

Danelle Blackley, of city clothing store Annah Stretton Birds of a Feather, recommends racegoers ''express  individuality with colour ... florals, embrace colour.''
