LADIES’ DAY IS SOCIAL HIGHLIGHT OF THE YEAR

Friday 13 June 2014

THE annual Ladies’ Day every June at Redcar Racecourse is one of the fashion and social highlights in the Tees Valley calendar....

 

This year’s big occasion is on Saturday 21st June and, as always, thousands of ladies will get out their finery, dress up and join their partners or friends for an afternoon at the races.
 
It comes at the end of the week featuring Royal Ascot, the race meeting so renowned with high fashion.
 
As is traditional at the racecourse’s Ladies’ Day, there are valuable prizes for the ‘Best Dressed Lady’ and the ‘Best Hat’. The finalist spotters will be mingling with the crowds, so everyone is in with a chance of winning.
 
The racecourse has also teamed up with Teesside Hospice to showcase how to look great in a ‘Guide to What to Wear at the Races’ fashion show at 2.45pm. All of the outfits have been sourced through the Teesside Hospice shops including the Saltburn vintage shop, brand boutique in Yarm and £1 shop in Redcar – proving that you can look good without spending a fortune.
 
Redcar Racecourse’s general manager Amy Fair enthused: “Flowers, bubbly and fancy hats . . . what more could a girl want? There’s certainly no need for Royal Ascot when there is Ladies’ Day at Redcar Races! Every lady should dress to impress because they’ll be in with the chance of some great prizes.
 
“If you’re more of a social race-goer than a racing aficionado, then Ladies’ Day is the day to come racing. It’s a perfect way to celebrate a special occasion or simply a great excuse to buy a new outfit.”
 
Competition “spotters” will mingle with the crowds throughout the afternoon and select the ten finalists for the ‘Best Dressed Lady’ (3.50pm) and ‘Best Hat’ (4.30pm) competitions.
 
The lady judged to be the ‘Best Dressed’ will be invited to go on to the Go Racing In Yorkshire Grand Final at Doncaster Racecourse on Saturday 25 October.
 
Back at Redcar Races on Saturday 21st June, the judging will be in the Winners’ Enclosure, with prizes from Market Cross Jewellers, Chic Hats, Orange Kerr Hair & Beauty, Capture Le Coeur Photography and Rae & Rose Bespoke Florists.
 
The prizes for the ‘Best Dressed’ ladies are: (1st) 18 carat sapphire and diamond ring, cut & blow dry voucher and gift pack, and a bouquet; (2nd) Coeur De Lion necklace and gift pack; (3rd) Guess Heart bracelet and gift pack.
 
The prizes for the ladies with the ‘Best Hat’ are: (1st) A bespoke fascinator/hat, a photo-shoot, canvas and 15 images, and a bouquet; (2nd) Guess stone set bracelet; (3rd) Purity 925 pendant.
 
After Ladies’ Day, the highlights for the rest of the year at Redcar Racecourse include:
