Peat wars! Fashions on the Field veteran, 76, is accused of bullying and banned from participating after insulting a glamorous younger competitor
- Racing procession queen was banned from a race track of North Queensland
- Peat club claimed Alison Wilson, 76, bullied a parade rival during a recent meeting
- She claims she has not had a chance to tell her side of the story and wants to apologize
A veteran fashion racing parade banned from a racetrack amid bullying accusations has refused to apologize and claims she has done nothing wrong.
Alison Wilson, 76, has won nearly 100 Fashions on the Field sashes at race events in North Queensland over the past 11 years.
Her hope for a different title at the Atherton Cup, which was held in her hometown on Saturday, was suppressed after she was not allowed to enter fashion competitions for the rest of the year.
The Atherton Turf Club Committee claims that Mrs. Wilson bullied a processional winner at a race meeting three weeks ago, where she stuck a finger in her face and demanded to know how old she was & # 39 ;.

Mrs. Wilson appeared on Channel Seven & # 39; s sunrise on Monday morning to tell her side of the story.
She claims that she never had the chance to explain it and that the controversy was blown out of context.
& # 39; I just approached her and asked for her age because I thought she was in the wrong section, & # 39; said the glamorous septuagenarian.
& # 39; Unfortunately she was in the right part and I walked away and sat down. I never pointed with my fingers and did not raise a hand. It is blown out of proportion. & # 39;
The peat club claims that the ban would be annulled if Mrs. Wilson apologized to the participant.

But a challenging Mrs. Wilson refused to decline.
& # 39; I don't owe her an apology, the peat club owes me an apology, and I need that, & # 39; she said.
& # 39; I will not apologize. Not really. I have done nothing wrong. That's why I'm here today. & # 39;
Mrs. Wilson is devastated that she has been banned from the coming carnival spring race.
& # 39; It has been very painful. I like to go to the peat club. I enjoy going to the country meetings, especially to our small country town, and we have many friends that I have met and saved & she said.
& # 39; Unfortunately I went on Saturday and a certain person went to the guard and told them to throw me out of the peat club when I entered Fashions on the Field. Now that is getting very dirty. & # 39;

Daily Mail Australia has contacted Atherton Turf Club for further comments.
Mrs. Wilson was supported at sunrise by her husband Trevor.
& # 39; I think they should have given her a chance to cast her vote, they should have invited her to the office and chose her side, & # 39; he said.
& # 39; It would have clarified it immediately. If she has done something wrong, she will accept it. & # 39;

Although Mrs. Wilson admits that her quirky remark to her younger rival is a & # 39; error & # 39; describes the ban as & # 39; horse *** & # 39; and has demanded an investigation hoping to return to the circuit in time for the spring racing season.
& # 39; I am a cheeky old chook. I could disturb a few feathers. But it is a tiff in a peat club, a fracas in the field of fashion. Don't banish me from it, & she said The courier post.
& # 39; I live for that and the years fly by so quickly. When I die, I let them wrap me in all my sashes, cremate and scatter the ashes on the circuit. Try an old girl. & # 39;
