FANTASTIC PRIZES TO BE WON AT FIRST EVER LADIES’ & GENTS’ EVENING

Tuesday 16 August 2011

SO successful is Ladies’ Day every summer that Redcar Racecourse is now hosting another glamourous occasion in 2011 – a Ladies’ AND Gents’ Evening.

Alongside the horse racing on Saturday 27 August, there is a fashion show to watch, ‘best dressed’ competitions to enter and a fun casino to play. 

Local band Chilli & The Peanuts are providing the music, while there will be a luxury ‘pamper’ zone hosted by Orange Kerr Hair & Beauty in the Petch Stand.

 
As during Ladies’ Day, there are major prizes for the ‘best dressed’ racegoers. The judges mingle with the crowds, so everyone is in with a chance of winning.
 
  • The ‘best dressed lady’ receives a designer dress from the Kate Fearnley Boutique, a bespoke fascinator or hat from Chic Hats, £100 of vouchers to spend at Orange Kerr Hair & Beauty, and a bouquet of flowers from Flowers by Hannah.
  • The ‘best dressed gent’ wins a £500 Gucci watch from Market Cross Jewellers and ten Grandstand tickets from the racecourse.
  • The ‘best dressed couple’ get a £400 men’s suit, shirt and tie from Middlesbrough’s Bakers Tailoring, a £200 Chamilia bracelet with charms from Market Cross Jewellers, a makeover, photo shoot and canvas courtesy of Capture Le Coeur Photography, and a bouquet of flowers from Flowers by Hannah.
 
Judging of the competitions will take place after the fourth race which is scheduled for 6.55pm.
 
Redcar Racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair said: “We have wonderful prizes which have been kindly and generously donated by local shops and businesses. It gives a great incentive for all our visitors to dress to impress so that they can be in with a chance of winning.”
 
The fabulous local designers Kate Fearnley and Lynne Young of Chic Hats are teaming up with Bakers Tailoring to showcase a ‘Guide to Glamour’ fashion show in the winners’ enclosure after the second race at 6pm.
 
Former jockey Jimmy Bleasdale will be hosting a behind-the-scenes tour of the racecourse including a visit to the Weighing Room.  The tour will start at 3.30pm in front of the Petch Stand.
 
And there will also be entertainment for children, including bouncy castles, facepainters, plus a magician and a clown.
 
The first race on Saturday 27 August is at 5.20pm, with the finale at 7.55pm. Gates open at 3pm.
