A WOMAN was floored as tempers flared at Doncaster races after a long day of drinking in the September sunshine.
The high heels were replaced by flats and fascinators gave way to fisticuffs as a brawl broke out after the World’s oldest Classic the St Leger.
Frankie Dettori rode in a victory in the big race, which dates back to 1776, on the grey favourite Logician.
But after the Italian romped home to glory, some racegoers got lairy and the fists started to fly.
The tussle captured on camera shows three young women in their 20s brawling on a busy street on the route from the track to the town centre.
A woman in an off the shoulder navy blue dress, who had earlier managed to throw off her Jimmy Choos and got into a barefoot battle with a blonde in a fetching grey trouser suit.
Other sparring partners, were in flat sandals, handed out at many racetracks, so ladies can rest their feet for the walk home, or on to their next venue.
Yet the barefoot look gave their opponent an edge and she had swiftly, after a spate of hair pulling, left one of her opponent’s topless to cheers from passers-by.
The warring women continued to trade blows as a fancy handbag dropped to the floor after fascinators, were carefully placed safely to one side.
The blokes seemed incapable of leaving the ladies to it and began their own brawl in the street with others even joining in with the fighting women.
One man wearing a blue waistcoat appears to punch the brunette in the blue dress, as she looks to have succeeded in half undressing one of her blonde opponent’s.
Other suited chaps then began wading in Peaky Blinders stlye with punches and kicks as passing stunned racegoers walked into the town centre.
Later that evening other brawls broke out in the town centre were tempers had frayed after a day in the warm September sun, but none to match this classic catfight.
One onlooker said: “There are often fights after the races, but this catfight was a classic, so full of panache and pain.
