The hat, which featured train tracks in the shape of a giant flower and two GNER locomotives along the rim, was specially designed to celebrate the return of the GNER Doncaster Cup to its home ground following the 32 million redevelopment of Doncaster Racecourse.

The race takes place on Friday, the second day of the historic St Leger Festival.

Elizabeth Parker has also created hats for pop stars Goldfrapp, Sister Bliss, Faithless and Marina Topley Bird.
